18 May, 2007
High (Remote Code Execution)
Hidden Administrator v1.7 and below
rewterz has discovered a critical vulnerability in Hidden
Administrator. This vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute
arbitrary code in the context of the user who executed Hidden
Authentication mechanism of Hidden Administrator can be bypassed with
ease via this vulnerability. With authentication bypassed at the
Hidden Administrator server, any malicious user can cause Hidden
Administrator to run arbitrary code and assume full control of the
system on which Hidden Administrator is running.
We have confirmed the ability to execute arbitrary own code. This is
an authentication bypass vulnerability which can be exploited easily.
