      Authentication Bypass in iisPROTECT


     <http://www.iisprotect.com/> iisPROTECT is designed to provide password
    protection to web directories similar to the htaccess method utilized by
    the Apache Software Foundation's HTTP web server. A vulnerability in the
    product allows bypassing the protection mechanism.


    Vulnerable systems:
     * iisPROTECT version 2.1 and 2.2

    Immune systems:
     * iisPROTECT version

    Upon successful installation and implementation of iisPROTECT, users will
    be presented with a login and password dialog box when attempting to
    access files contained in a protected directory.

    Consider the following example:

    An attacker can bypass this authentication by simply requesting the same
    file through different URL-encoded representations. Examples of these
    include but are not limited to:
