FreeNAS 'exec_raw.php' Arbitrary Command Execution

critical Nessus Plugin ID 50510
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


A web application on the remote host is affected by an arbitrary command execution vulnerability.


The version of FreeNAS on the remote host fails to restrict access to its 'exec_raw.php' script. A remote, unauthenticated attacker can pass arbitrary commands through the script's 'cmd' parameter and have them executed with administrative privileges.


Upgrade to FreeNAS or later.
