FreeBSD : twiki -- remote Perl code execution (21ce1840-6107-11e4-9e84-0022156e8794)

High Nessus Plugin ID 78816


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


TWiki developers report :

The debugenableplugins request parameter allows arbitrary Perl code execution.

Using an HTTP GET request towards a TWiki server, add a specially crafted debugenableplugins request parameter to TWiki's view script (typically port 80/TCP). Prior authentication may or may not be necessary.

A remote attacker can execute arbitrary Perl code to view and modify any file the webserver user has access to.

Example: estorePlugin%3bprint('Content-Type:text/html\r\n\r\nVulnerable!')%3bex it

The TWiki site is vulnerable if you see a page with text 'Vulnerable!'.


Update the affected package.
