BasiliX Arbitrary Command Execution Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for arbitrary command execution vulnerability in BasiliX

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to arbitrary
command execution.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running a version of BasiliX between
1.0.2beta or 1.0.3beta. In such versions, the script 'login.php3'
fails to sanitize user input, which enables a remote attacker to pass
in a specially crafted value for the parameter 'username' with
arbitrary commands to be executed on the target using the permissions
of the web server.
