Description

The remote host seems to be running mod_auth_any, an Apache Module which allows the use of third-party authentication programs.

This module does not properly escape shell characters when a username is supplied, and therefore an attacker may use this module to : - Execute arbitrary commands on the remote host - Bypass the authentication process completely
