SGI MachineInfo CGI program, installed by default on some web servers, prints potentially sensitive system status information, which could be used by remote attackers for information gathering activities.
Excite for Web Servers (EWS) 1.1 allows local users to gain privileges by obtaining the encrypted password from the world-readable Architext.conf authentication file and replaying the encrypted password in an HTTP request to AT-generated.cgi or AT-admin.cgi.
Excite for Web Servers (EWS) 1.1 records the first two characters of a plaintext password in the beginning of the encrypted password, which makes it easier for an attacker to guess passwords via a brute force or dictionary attack.
inetd in AIX 4.1.5 dynamically assigns a port N when starting ttdbserver (ToolTalk server), but also inadvertently listens on port N-1 without passing control to ttdbserver, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a large number of connections to port N-1, which are not properly closed by inetd.
Idle locking function in MacOS 9 allows local users to bypass the password protection of idled sessions by selecting the "Log Out" option and selecting a "Cancel" option in the dialog box for an application that attempts to verify that the user wants to log out, which returns the attacker into the locked session.
