Cherokee remote command execution Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for version of Cherokee
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is running Cherokee - a fast and tiny web server.
The remote version of this software is vulnerable to remote
command execution due to a lack of web requests sanitization,
especially shell metacharacters.
Additionally, this version fails to drop root rights after it binds
to listen port.
A remote attacker may submit a specially crafted web request to
execute arbitrary command on the server with root rights.
Solution : Upgrade to Cherokee 0.2.7 or newer
Threat Level: High
