Improper Neutralization of Special Elements used in an OS Command ('OS Command Injection')
We have recently released new version of AirMax AirOS firmware v6.3.0 for TI, XW and XM boards that fixes vulnerabilities found on AirMax AirOS v6.2.0 and prior TI, XW and XM boards, according to the description below:There are certain end-points containing functionalities that are vulnerable to command injection. It is possible to craft an input string that passes the filter check but still contains commands, resulting in remote code execution.Mitigation:Update to the latest AirMax AirOS firmware version available at the AirMax download page.
CWE-78 - OS Command Injection
The OS command injection weakness (also known as shell injection) is a vulnerability which enables an attacker to run arbitrary OS commands on a server. This is done by modifying the intended downstream OS command and injecting arbitrary commands, enabling the execution of unauthorized OS commands. This has the potential to fully compromise the application along with all of its data, and, if the compromised process does not follow the principle of least privileges, it may compromise other parts of the hosting infrastructure as well. This weakness is listed as number ten in the 'CWE Top 25 Most Dangerous Software Weaknesses'.
