FreeNAS < 0.7.2 Revision 5543 Command Execution Vulnerability

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5714


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


The remote host is running FreeNAS, a network attached storage distribution based on FreeBSD.

Versions of FreeNAS earlier than 0.7.2 Revision 5543 are potentially affected by a remote command execution vulnerability because the application fails to restrict access to the 'exec_raw.php' script. A remote, unauthenticated attacker can pass arbitrary commands through the script's 'cmd' parameter and have them executed with root privileges.


Upgrade to FreeNAS 0.7.2 Revision 5543 or later.
