Target software description:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

http://www.dblog.it/sito/default.asp

DBlog CMS is a open source Content Management System for IIS/ASP platform.
Some days ago dBlog 2.0 hit the goal of the 110.000 platform downloads,
over 100.000 of them regarding the lastest version.

GoogleDork: inurl:"articolo.asp" "powered by dblog"

Vulnerabilities:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

DBlog stores all the data in JET database file with default name "dblog.mdb".
This database file is accessible from web as:

http://www.example.com/mdb-database/dblog.mdb

By fetching database anyone can obtain admin password sha hashes and then try to
crack them and gain admin privileges.
There are some mitigating factors though:

1. IIS webserver can refuse ".mdb" file download
2. database file or directory can be renamed to something else

Quick look @ real world sites shows, that ~ 20% of them are exploitable.
Considering large number of DBlog-based websites, this is serious problem IMHO.

How to fix:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

IIS directory restrictions, renaming directory and database file.
