Embedthis GoAhead RCE Vulnerability CVE-2017-17562 Scanner Detail

There is a remote code execution vulnerability in Embedthis GoAhead before 3.6.5.

Embedthis GoAhead before 3.6.5 allows remote code execution if CGI is enabled and a CGI program is dynamically linked. This is a result of initializing the environment of forked CGI scripts using untrusted HTTP request parameters in the cgiHandler function in cgi.c. When combined with the glibc dynamic linker, this behaviour can be abused for remote code execution using special parameter names such as LD_PRELOAD. An attacker can POST their shared object payload in the body of the request, and reference it using /proc/self/fd/0.

Some Advice for Common Problems

Update your Embedthis GoAhead application to the latest version to eliminate this vulnerability.
