===============
1) Introduction
===============


Simple HTTPD (shttpd) is an open source web server created for embedded
systems.

2) Bugs
=======

----------------------
A] directory traversal
----------------------

Using the "..\" pattern is possible to download any file in the disk on
which is located the web root directory.


--------------------------------------
B] scripts and CGI viewing/downloading
--------------------------------------

Any script or CGI in the server can be viewed/downloaded instead of
being executed simply appending the chars '+', '.', %20 (this one
reported by Shay priel in the summer 2007), %2e and any other byte (in
hex format too) major than 0x7f to the requested filename.


Note that only Windows seems vulnerable to the above bugs.
