Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200508-21 (phpWebSite: Arbitrary command execution through XML-RPC and SQL injection)

phpWebSite uses an XML-RPC library that improperly handles XML-RPC
requests and responses with malformed nested tags. Furthermore,

(phpWebSite: Arbitrary command execution through XML-RPC and SQL injection)

    phpWebSite uses an XML-RPC library that improperly handles XML-RPC
    requests and responses with malformed nested tags. Furthermore,
    'matrix_killer' reported that phpWebSite is vulnerable to a SQL
    injection attack.
  
Impact :

    A malicious remote user could exploit this vulnerability to inject
    arbitrary PHP script code into eval() statements by sending a specially
    crafted XML document, and also inject SQL commands to access the
    underlying database directly.
  
Workaround :

    There is no known workaround at this time."
