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 Administrator.
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.
