IIS Remote Command Execution

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Acertains if arbitrary commands can be executed

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

Arbitary commands can be executed on the remote web server

Description :

When IIS receives a user request to run a script, it renders
the request in a decoded canonical form, then performs
security checks on the decoded request. A vulnerability
results because a second, superfluous decoding pass is
performed after the initial security checks are completed.
Thus, a specially crafted request could permit a possible hacker to
execute arbitrary commands on the IIS Server.
