DirectAdmin CMD_DB command execution
|directadmin-cmddb-command-execution (50167)||High Risk|
DirectAdmin could allow a local attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the system, caused by the improper validation of user-supplied input. By sending a specially-crafted request using the name parameter containing shell metacharacters, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to inject and execute arbitrary shell commands with root privileges on the vulnerable system.
Upgrade to the latest version of DirectAdmin (1.33.4 or later), available from the DirectAdmin Web site. See References.
