As filtering is not enabled while passing the rootUname parameter to the exec function, by sending a GET request to ajaxServerSettingsChk.php, the attacker can explicitly run system commands. This was noticed in rConfig 3.9.5.

Mitigation / Precaution

We suggest you update rConfig to a version gater than 3.9.5 in order to fix this vulnerability.
