TWiki CGI session files code execution
|twiki-cgisession-code-execution (32389)||High Risk|
TWiki could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by insecure permissions in the global/tmp directory. By creating a specially-crafted CGI session file in the directory, a remote or local attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary Perl code with the privileges of the Web server process.
