Improper Control of Generation of Code ('Code Injection')
The wato component in Check_MK before 1.2.4p4 and 1.2.5 before 1.2.5i4 uses the pickle Python module unsafely, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted serialized object, related to an automation URL.
CWE-94 - Code Injection
Code injection is a type of vulnerability that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. This vulnerability fully compromises the machine and can cause a wide variety of security issues, such as unauthorized access to sensitive information, manipulation of data, denial of service attacks etc. Code injection is different from command injection in the fact that it is limited by the functionality of the injected language (e.g. PHP), as opposed to command injection, which leverages existing code to execute commands, usually within the context of a shell.
