op5 Portal Arbitrary Command Execution

critical Nessus Plugin ID 57576
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.


The remote web server hosts a PHP application that is vulnerable to arbitrary command execution.


The version of op5 Config hosted on the remote web server is earlier than 1.6.2. As such, it contains a flaw in the 'license.php' script that allows a remote, unauthenticated attacker to run arbitrary commands with the privileges of the web user simply by enclosing them in backticks in the timestamp field.


Upgrade op5 Portal to version 1.6.2 or later.
