Shell Command Execution Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for the filtering of dangerous meta characters from network binded scripts

with some provided user input. The input is not stripped for such meta
characters as ` ' | , etc. This would allow a remote attacker to
execute arbitrary code.
Solution : Make sure all meta characters are filtered out, or close the port
for access from untrusted networks
