NOTE: CVE and a third party dispute this vulnerability, because the langfile parameter is set to english.php in each file. NOTE: CVE also disputes a later report of this vulnerability in 1.2, because the langfile parameter is set to french.php in 1.2.
CWE-94 - Code Injection
Code injection is a type of vulnerability that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. This vulnerability fully compromises the machine and can cause a wide variety of security issues, such as unauthorized access to sensitive information, manipulation of data, denial of service attacks etc. Code injection is different from command injection in the fact that it is limited by the functionality of the injected language (e.g. PHP), as opposed to command injection, which leverages existing code to execute commands, usually within the context of a shell.
