Vulnerability Assessment Details

mod_auth_any command execution

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Attempts to log into the remote web server

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host seems to be running mod_auth_any, an Apache Module
which permits the use of third-party authentication programs.

This module does not properly escape shell characters when a
username is supplied, and therefore a possible hacker may use this module
to :
- Execute arbitrary commands on the remote host
- Bypass the authentication process completely
