WSO2 products are vulnerable to Local File Inclusion (LFI) issue via LogViewer Admin Service.
An authenticated user can download configuration files in the filesystem via downloadArchivedLogFiles operation in LogViewer admin service. The request to the admin service accepts a file path relative to the carbon log file directory (i.e. <WSO2_PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/logs), hence can access any file in the file system.
An authorized user with admin privileges can download any file in the file system through LogViewer admin service.
Apply the following patches based on your products by following the instructions in the README file. Patches can also be downloaded from http://wso2.com/security-patch-releases/.
