e107 ePing Plugin Arbitrary Code Execution Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for arbitrary code execution vulnerability in e107 ePing plugin

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to arbitrary
command execution.

Description :

The installation of e107 on the remote host includes the ePing test.
This test fails to sanitize the 'eping_cmd', 'eping_count' and/or
'eping_host' parameters of the 'doping.php' script before using them
in a system() call. A possible hacker can exploit this flaw to execute
arbitrary shell commands subject to the rights of the userid under
which the affected application runs.
