Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

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.
