Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for arbitrary code execution vulnerability in e107 eTrace 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 eTrace
test. This test fails to sanitize the 'etrace_cmd' and
'etrace_host' parameters of the 'dotrace.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.
