Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to gain access to potentially sensitive information.

The vulnerability exists due to the application permits usage of entity aliases mapped to a single entity share with the same alias name. A local user can create a share with the same alias name as used by another user and wait for the other user to login. After the victim logs in, the attacker will be able to gain access to files metadata in the victim's share.
