Description

QuickTime Streaming Server's parse_xml.cgi script passes user input directly to PERL's open() call. Thus, an attacker can trivially execute arbitrary commands under the privilege of the server.

Solution(s)

  • http-qtss-parse-xml-remote-exec

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.
