Appweb is a compact, high-performance, embeddable web server that can be easily integrated into an application. It is created by Embedthis Software, a company that focuses on developing web application technologies. Appweb provides developers with a scalable and secure web server solution that can be embedded into their own applications, devices, or platforms. It supports various web standards, including HTTP/2, WebSocket, SSL/TLS, and CGI, making it a robust and adaptable web server.

CVE-2018-8715 is a vulnerability detected in Appweb versions before 7.0.3. It is related to the authCondition function in http/httpLib.c, which has a logic flaw that allows an attacker to bypass the authentication process for form and digest login types. By forging a malicious HTTP request, an attacker can exploit this vulnerability and gain unauthorized access to protected resources. If left unaddressed, this vulnerability can lead to serious security breaches and data thefts.

When exploited, CVE-2018-8715 can allow an attacker to gain unauthorized access to restricted resources, such as sensitive data, files, and directories. This can lead to data theft, loss of confidentiality, and even system-wide compromises. For example, an attacker can use this vulnerability to steal sensitive customer information, including login credentials, credit card numbers, and personal identifiable information (PII). This can cause significant reputational damage to the affected organization, leading to financial and legal repercussions.
