The vulnerability exists in /is-human/engine.php . 

It is possible to take control of the eval() function via the 'type' parameter, when the 'action' is set to log-reset. From here we can run out own code.

In order to avoid any errors we point the $is_hum->get_* array variable into $is_hum->get_ih and to close the execution without error we point it to php stored function error_log(). In between we may place our own php code and use the passthru() function to execute commands.

Execution running the linux whoami command:
