Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
P-News 2.0 stores db/user.txt under the web document root with insufficient access control, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information such as usernames and password hashes via a direct request. NOTE: this might be the same issue as CVE-2006-6888.
CWE-264 - Permissions Privileges and Access Controls
CWE 264 (permissions, privileges, and access controls) is not a weakness in and of itself, rather it is a category of weaknesses related to the management of permissions, privileges, and other security features used to perform access control. If not addressed, the weaknesses in this category allow attackers to gain privileges for an unintended sphere of control, access sensitive information, and execute arbitrary commands.
