					This module exploits a vulnerability in the MAKETEXT Twiki variable. By using a
				specially crafted MAKETEXT, a malicious user can execute shell commands since user
				input is passed to the Perl "eval" command without first being sanitized. The
				problem is caused by an underlying security issue in the CPAN:Locale::Maketext
				module. This works in TWiki sites that have user interface localization enabled
				(UserInterfaceInternationalisation variable set).

				If USERNAME and PASSWORD aren't provided, anonymous access will be tried. Also,
				if the 'TwikiPage' option isn't provided, the module will try to create a random
				page on the SandBox space.  The modules has been tested successfully on
				TWiki 5.1.2 as distributed with the official TWiki-VM-5.1.2-1 virtual machine.
