Qmail Remote Command Execution via Shellshock
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 77970
SynopsisThe remote mail server allows remote command execution via Shellshock.
DescriptionThe remote host appears to be running Qmail. A remote attacker can exploit Qmail to execute commands via a specially crafted MAIL FROM header if the remote host has a vulnerable version of Bash. This is due to the fact that Qmail does not properly sanitize input before setting environmental variables.
A negative result from this plugin does not prove conclusively that the remote system is not affected by Shellshock, only that Qmail could not be used to exploit the Shellshock flaw.
SolutionApply the referenced Bash patch.
