Applicable to: Plesk for Windows
Vulnerability CVE-2020-13166 was discovered in myLittleAdmin: https://ssd-disclosure.com/ssd-advisory-mylittleadmin-preauth-rce/
MyLittleAdmin is a web-based management tool specially designed for MS SQL Server. It fully works with MS SQL Server. While the product appears to be discontinued (no new releases since 2013) it is still being offered on the company web site as well as part of the optional installation of Plesk. Furthermore, there are numerous active installations present on the Internet. An unauthenticated RCE vulnerability in the product allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands within the context of the IIS application engine.
If myLittleAdmin is installed, an unauthenticated remote attacker can run arbitrary code on behalf of IUSRPLESK_sqladmin.
As an alternative, to manage MS SQL databases it is recommended to use Microsoft SQL Management studio.
