The PHF cgi can be exploited by sending a GET request containing a shell metacharacter to execute shell code on the remote web server.

Solution(s)

  • phf-cgi-disable

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
