9.8 CVE-2022-40929

Exploit RCE Path Traversal


XXL-JOB 2.2.0 has a Command execution vulnerability in background tasks.


CWE-77 : Improper Neutralization of Special Elements used in a Command ('Command Injection')
The software constructs all or part of a command using externally-influenced input from an upstream component, but it does not neutralize or incorrectly neutralizes special elements that could modify the intended command when it is sent to a downstream component. If at all possible, use library calls rather than external processes to recreate the desired functionality. If possible, ensure that all external commands called from the program are statically created. Run time: Run time policy enforcement may be used in an allowlist fashion to prevent use of any non-sanctioned commands. Assign permissions to the software system that prevents the user from accessing/opening privileged files. Python-based dependency management tool avoids OS command injection when generating Git commands but allows injection of optional arguments with input beginning with a dash, potentially allowing for code execution. Canonical example of OS command injection. CGI program does not neutralize "|" metacharacter when invoking a phonebook program. Chain: improper input validation (CWE-20) in username parameter, leading to OS command injection (CWE-78), as exploited in the wild per CISA KEV. injection of sed script syntax ("sed injection") injection of sed script syntax ("sed injection") injection of sed script syntax ("sed injection") image program allows injection of commands in "Magick Vector Graphics (MVG)" language. anti-spam product allows injection of SNMP commands into confiuration file
