    Crystal Enterprise, which is affected in the same way. The vulnerability
    is documented in the Vulnerability Details section of this bulletin.

    An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could retrieve
    and delete files through the Crystal Reports and Crystal Enterprise Web
    viewers on an affected system. The number of files of files that are
    impacted by this vulnerability would depend on the security context of
    the affected component that is used by the Crystal Web viewer.

    Services (IIS) installed.
