Avi Alkalay Multiple Scripts / Multiple Issues

Product:
Alkalay.net Scripts

Released:
09/20/2005

Description:
Multiple perl scripts from alkalay.net contain remote command execution or arbitrary file retrieval vulnerabilities.

Software Affected:
man-cgi (Command Execution)
notify (Command Execution)
nslookup.cgi (Command Execution)
contribute.cgi/contribute.pl (File Retrieval)

Technical Description:
Various perl scripts on alkalay.net act on unsafe data from the client, which can allow command execution on the web server or
retrieval of arbitrary files from the web server (both as the web server user).

Note that these programs do not appear to have been maintained for some time, and the author did not respond to contact attempts. These vulns were found while doing research for OSVDB-19515, OSVDB-19516 and OSVDB-19517 (man2web command execution).

Fix/Workaround:
None at this time.

Vendor Status:
Avi Alkalay was notified on 09/12/2005 but did not respond.
