Description: Researchers have identified a remote code execution vulnerability in the GoAhead Web Server, a widely used web server that is designed to be embedded in applications and devices. This vulnerability, identified as CVE-2017-17562, manifests due to improper handling of user-supplied variables in an HTTP request that are subsequently used when forking and executing a CGI script. An attacker who exploits this vulnerability could remotely execute arbitrary code of their choice, thereby compromising the server. GoAhead versions since 2.5.0 have been confirmed vulnerable. Software updates that address this vulnerability have been published and are available for download.
Description: Researchers have identified a flaw in RSA-encrypted TLS traffic that could allow an attacker to perform decryption or signing operations with the private key of a TLS server. This vulnerability is a variation of the flaws first identified in RSA encryption by Daniel Bleichenbacher in 1998 and has been named "Return Of Bleichenbacher's Oracle Threat," or ROBOT. Software updates for various affected products and software are forthcoming pending the development of a patch that addresses this flaw.
