    I think maybe you're seeing the directory traversal vulnerability
    identified in Groupwise. Groupwise 6 had this vulnerability as well as
    previous versions if I remember right.

    Subject: [Full-Disclosure] Novell WebAcces

    I was playing around when I found a small problem with Novell's
    With User.lang you can give in you're language as parameter I tried some
    different stuff there and when I tried "> so that the URL would be
    hxxp://"> a Link
    apeared I clicked it and so I found some unprotected dirs.
    The problem is that the file
    contains info about the servername context and install paths
    It seems that this is working on almost every webacces server.
