WebGUI < 6.7.6 arbitrary command execution

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for arbitrary remote command execution in WebGUI < 6.7.6

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a CGI script that is prone to arbitrary
code execution.

Description :

The remote host is running WebGUI, a content management system from
Plain Black Software.

The installed version of WebGUI on the remote host fails to sanitize
user-supplied input via the 'class' variable to various sources before
using it to run commands. By leveraging this flaw, a possible hacker may be
able to execute arbitrary commands on the remote host within the
context of the affected web server userid.
