Description:Summary:
One of the BizDB scripts, bizdb-search.cgi, passes a variable's
contents to an unchecked open() call and can therefore be made to execute commands at the privilege
level of the webserver.

Vulnerability Impact:
The variable is dbname, and if passed a semicolon followed by shell
commands they will be executed. This cannot be exploited from a browser, as the software checks for
a referrer field in the HTTP request. A valid referrer field can however be created and sent
programmatically or via a network utility like netcat.

Solution:
No known solution was made available for at least one year
since the disclosure of this vulnerability. Likely none will be provided anymore.
General solution options are to upgrade to a newer release, disable respective features,
remove the product or replace the product by another one.

CVSS Score:
