Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a Perl script that is susceptible to

shell for execution. An unauthenticated attacker may be able to
exploit this issue to execute arbitrary shell commands on the remote
host subject to the rights of the web server user id.
