Vembu BDR Suite 4.2.0 Command Execution (CVE-2021-26471)

Application Details

Vembu BDR Suite is a comprehensive Backup and Disaster Recovery solution for virtual, physical, and cloud workloads, and SaaS applications.


Vembu BDR Suite could allow a remote attacker to execute an arbitrary (windows/linux) shell command in the context of the httpd process.


By placing a command in a GET request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the http API located at /sgwebservice_o.php which accepts a command argument. Using this command argument an unauthenticated attacker can execute arbitrary shell commands.

GET /sgwebservice_o.php?Action=StoreSpecialFolder&command=echo hacked >/tmp/divd_was_here.txt&tempFile=/tmp


By turning this into a traffic file and matching rule, we are able to detect command execution attempts to the application.


Idappcom has created signature 8021748 along with a traffic file.
