    Here's something to be cheery on Christmas Day —a vulnerability affecting a web server that's been embedded in hundreds of thousands of IoT devices.

    The said vulnerability affects GoAhead, a tiny web server package created by Embedthis Software LLC, a company based in Seattle, USA.

    On GoAhead's homepage, Embedthis claims its product is currently deployed inside products released by big industry names such as Comcast, Oracle, D-Link, ZTE, HP, Siemens, Canon, and many others.

    This tiny web server is quite popular with hardware vendors since it can run on devices with limited resources, such as Internet of Things (IoY) devices, routers, printers, and other networking equipment.
