A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request to the claroline/exercice/testheaderpage.php script or to the claroline/resourcelinker/ script using the 'rootSys' or 'clarolineRepositorySys' parameters to specify a malicious PHP file from a remote system, which would allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code on the vulnerable system.
