Improper Neutralization of Special Elements used in an OS Command ('OS Command Injection')
** UNSUPPORTED WHEN ASSIGNED ** The administration web interface on Belkin Linksys WRT160NL 1.0.04.002_US_20130619 devices allows remote authenticated attackers to execute system commands with root privileges via shell metacharacters in the ui_language POST parameter to the apply.cgi form endpoint. This occurs in do_upgrade_post in mini_httpd. NOTE: This vulnerability only affects products that are no longer supported by the maintainer
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'.
