Plesk Apache zeroday / June 2013
discovered & exploited by kingcope


this Plesk configuration setting makes it possible:
scriptAlias /phppath/ "/usr/bin/"
Furthermore this is not cve-2012-1823 because the php interpreter is called directly.
(no php file is called)

Parallels Plesk Remote Exploit -- PHP Code Execution and therefore Command Execution
Affected and tested: Plesk 9.5.4
					 Plesk 9.3
					 Plesk 9.2
					 Plesk 9.0
