Summary:
This event is generated when an attempt is made to exploit a known
vulnerability in a Web server running on an IRIX platform.

--
Impact:
Serious. Execution of arbitrary code is possible.

--
Detailed Information:
IRIX versions 5.0 through 6.3 contain a CGI script (/var/www/cgi-bin/webdist.cgi) 
for remote administration purposes. This script, as originally released by 
SGI, contains a vulnerability that can allow an attacker to run any 
arbitrary command that the web server user has access to.

--
Affected Systems:
	IRIX systems 5.0 to 6.3

--
Attack Scenarios:
An attacker makes a request for the script followed by a semi-colon
character ";" and then the command to be executed.

--
Ease of Attack:
Simple. No exploit software required.

--
False Positives:
None Known

--
False Negatives:
None Known

--
Corrective Action:
Disallow the use of this script on the server.

Check for further signs of compromise.
