Finding Control Web Panel (CWP) instances
Security researcher Paulos Yibelo shared findings this week on two new vulnerabilities within the popular Control Web Panel (formerly CentOS Web Panel) web hosting management software. Both CVE-2021-45466 (a file write vulnerability) and CVE-2021-45467 (a file inclusion vulnerability) are interesting individually, but they provide a powerful attack vector when chained together to achieve pre-authentication remote code execution (RCE) on a vulnerable target. Taking into account the 200k+ unique, public-facing servers currently running CWP, there could be many systems at risk of exploitation.
The maintainers of CWP have patched CVE-2021-45467 in the most recent release (v0.9.8.1122), with the guidance for administrators of CWP installations to upgrade to this version as soon as possible. No interim mitigation strategies have been shared.
