No one else has access to your server? Can you find that "testme" application?

Yes but I removed it right away.

Kicking myself now about it though.

If the directory is read write for the world anyone can add a file to the directory and execute it though right?

From a local user yes. So that means someone can exploit a service on your system to write something to your FS. But at this point it doesn't appear you have much data to audit?

Nuke Cops -> Nuke Security

Author: LadyCherry PostPosted: Wed Apr 06, 2005 4:48 am    Post subject: Securing a Read, Write, Execute Directory?

Hey All,

I am using an attachment mod for my forums so that people can upload and display their art and other things in the forums.

Yesterday I found that a script was running on the server called testme. It was running with apache. Someone had found the world writable directory and was executing a script from it!

This is a major problem. I need the attachment mod for the functionallity of my site. How can I secure a world writable directory from this happening again?

I own and run the server.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for your time,
-Lady Cherry
