    Hi all,
    Some weeks ago someone hacked our webserver...

    We've made some researches and test and we've found a security flaw on the following pages:


    This flaw can permit an attacker to read files that are stored on the hd.



    We've tested it with plesk for windows 8.1 and 8.1.1, but we didn't found any information on this exploit. Is there already an hotfix? How can we solve that?

    Unbelievable that nobody gives any response on this. That's why i really think that the majority of all users here don't care about security.

    Can confirm the above, this is really a big issue.

    Can someone of Plesk also check on this and give us at least any response ?

    I believe Plesk stores the admin password in plain text in a file. With the above issue it is possible to retreive this file ?

    I can't duplicate on my CentOS installation (changing to a unix file and not the Win file), so this may be a Windows only flaw.

    Did anyone open a support ticket?
