PerlDesk < 2 pdesk.cgi lang Parameter Traversal Server-Side Script Execution

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host may be tricked into running an executable file.

Description

The remote host is running perlDesk, a web-based help desk application implemented in Perl. It is reported that perlDesk is prone to a service-side script execution vulnerability. If an attacker manages to store a script on the remote server, he may execute it through the 'lang' URI parameter of perlDesk. Otherwise, he may use this vulnerability for information disclosure purposes.

Solution

Upgrade to version 2 or higher.
