ePerl embedded foreign code execution
|eperl-embedded-code-execution (6743)||High Risk|
Embedded Perl (ePerl) could allow the execution of embedded code, caused by a vulnerability in the ePerl preprocessor. A remote attacker could embed a malicious Perl script within an HTML Web page using the #sinclude directive, which allows ePerl delimiters to be ignored during the parsing mechanism. If the attacker places an #include directive within the file referenced by the #sinclude directive, malicious code in the file referenced by the #sinclude directive is then executed once the Web page is loaded.
No remedy available as of May 1, 2013.
