Apache Remote Command Execution via .bat files

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tests for presence of Apache Command Execution via .bat vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The Apache 2.0.x Win32 installation is shipped with a
default script, /cgi-bin/test-cgi.bat, that permits a possible hacker to execute
commands on the Apache server (although it is reported that any .bat file
could open this vulnerability.)

A possible hacker can send a pipe character '|' with commands appended as parameters,
which are then executed by Apache.

Solution:

This bug is fixed in 1.3.24 and 2.0.34-beta, or remove /cgi-bin/test-cgi.bat
