Froxlor is a free and open-source web panel for hosting web servers like Apache. According to a security advisory, versions of Froxlor prior to 2.0.10 are affected by a critical code injection vulnerability with a CVSS score of 9.9.

Attackers could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on servers running an affected version of Froxlor. All they need is access to the server where Froxlor is installed. This could allow them to compromise the entire server and take it over.

The vulnerability arises due to a lack of proper validation of user-supplied input in some functions. An attacker could craft specially crafted requests containing malicious code to exploit this and achieve remote code execution. This is highly dangerous and makes the server vulnerable to various attacks.

The good news is that the Froxlor developers have released version 2.0.10 which patches this vulnerability. All Froxlor users are highly recommended to upgrade to this version immediately. Regularly applying security updates is also important to stay protected against such vulnerabilities. Users should also ensure their servers have the latest OS and application security patches installed.

With cyber attacks on the rise, it is important for web hosting providers and users to stay vigilant. Promptly applying patches for vulnerabilities can help prevent servers from being compromised.
