Synopsis :

The remote host is running a web application that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its self-reported build number, the Sophos Web Appliance
running on the remote host is prior to 4.3.1.2. It is, therefore,
affected by following vulnerabilities :

- A remote command injection vulnerability exists due to a
failure in certain functions to properly sanitize input
upon submission to reports. An authenticated, remote
attacker can exploit this to inject arbitrary commands.
(CVE-2017-6182)

- A remote command injection vulnerability exists due to
improper handling of parameters in the active directory
configuration. An authenticated, remote attacker can
exploit this to inject arbitrary commands.
(CVE-2017-6183)

- A remote command injection vulnerability exists due to a
failure to properly sanitize input passed via the
'token' parameter upon submission to reports. An
authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to
inject arbitrary commands. (CVE-2017-6184)

- An authentication bypass vulnerability exists due to the
use of static session IDs. An unauthenticated, remote
attacker can exploit this to bypass authentication.
(CVE-2017-6412)

- A remote command injection vulnerability exists due to a
failure to properly sanitize unspecified HTTP request
parameters upon submission to reports. An
authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to
execute arbitrary commands. (VulnDB 154025)
