eScan Web Management Console Command Injection

This module exploits a command injection vulnerability found in the eScan Web Management Console. The vulnerability exists while processing CheckPass login requests. An attacker with a valid username can use a malformed password to execute arbitrary commands. With mwconf privileges, the runasroot utility can be abused to get root privileges. This module has been tested successfully on eScan 5.5-2 on Ubuntu 12.04.
