Type ..........  Remote Command Execution

o Info:
================
That script is used to open file '.dat'.

o Vulnerable Code:
================
..
23  [...]
24  $old = $query->param('olddat');
25  [...]
..
..
34  [...]
35  open (VF, "$olddat");
36  [...]
..

(24) At this line, the cgi param 'olddat' is associated to one database.
   This variable isn't checked by anyone matching, so you can open
all file that you want. (35) At this line the script open the file that you had chosen. With pipe `|`
   is possible to execute arbitrary code on the shell.

o Proof of concept:
================

uid=99(www) gid=99(www)
