CentOS CWP Exploitation Quickly Follows Its PoC

Exploitation attempts against a critical CentOS Control Web Panel (CWP) vulnerability have been observed shortly following the publication of the proof of concept (PoC) code in early January 2023.

A tool that was formerly known as the CentOS Web Panel, CWP is a free and popular web hosting control panel for groups of Linux systems; it offers support for the general management and security administration of servers and clients in an environment.
