      HostAdmin Path Disclosure
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SUMMARY

     <http://dreamcost.com/?page=hostadmin> HostAdmin is a "hosting automation
    application that is both simple to use and install, while remaining robust
    and affordable enough for any startup to medium sized business". A
    vulnerability in the product allows remote attackers to cause the product
    to reveal the true path under which the product is installed.

    DETAILS

    It's possible to make a malformed http request in HostAdmin and in doing
    so trigger an error. The resulting error message will disclose potentially
    sensitive installation path information to the remote attacker.

    Example:
    Sending the following:
    http://www.site.com/pathofhostadmin/?page='

    Will result in something similar to:
    Warning: fopen("member_\'.html", "r") - No such file or directory in
    /home/virtual/site1/fst/var/www/html/template_2.html on line 91
    Sorry, the page you tried to access could not be found on the server

    Solution:
    The vendor has been contacted. No patch is available at this time.
