TYPO3 userUid Arbitrary Command Execution Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tries to run a command via TYPO3

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that allows arbitrary
command execution.

Description :

The remote host is running TYPO3, an open-source content management
system written in PHP.

The version of TYPO3 installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
user-supplied input to the 'userUid' parameter before using it in the
'spell-check-logic.php' script to execute a command. An
unauthenticated remote attacker can leverage this flaw to execute
arbitrary code on the remote host subject to the rights of the web
server user id.
