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
