The remote web server is affected by a remote command execution
The remote host is running Cherokee - a fast and tiny web server.
The remote version of this software is vulnerable to remote
command execution due to a lack of web requests sanitization,
especially shell metacharacters.
Additionally, this version fails to drop root privileges after it
binds to listen port.
A remote attacker may submit a specially crafted web request to
execute arbitrary command on the server with root privileges.

Upgrade to Cherokee 0.2.7 or newer as this reportedly fixes the issue.
