Unnamed BugCrowd Security Researcher as part of an annual vulnerability assessment
An external security audit discovered a vulnerability in the QTI Migration tool which is used in converting QTI version 1.x data into QTI 2.0 content packages. The vulnerability allowed read only access to the underlying filesystem. This means that a potential attacker could read files from various system level directories where configuration and system user details are stored.
An internal forensic investigation found no evidence that the vulnerability, which has existed on the system for some time, has been exploited during the time it was present on the system.
All systems were patched as of 13:21 MT on 2/3/2017
