    As you know lots of customer use smartsearch.cgi search script from Its a good PPC script and we have lots of customers using it, but recently I have seen some people have found a exploit for the script and can gain shell access and download pron or spam and all kinds of things :(
    This has all happened from users running smartsearch.cgi script.

    After researching on net i found this :


    Now I know most host have customers using this smartsearch ppc script for sure and want to know is there some patch i can use on script or server so someone cant execute some misc code /trojan etc on server.
    How do we avoid it ?
    Any help, tips, comments are appreciated.
