The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200411-33
(TWiki: Arbitrary command execution)
The TWiki search function, which uses a shell command executed via the
Perl backtick operator, does not properly escape shell metacharacters
in the user-provided search string.
An attacker can insert malicious commands into a search request,
allowing the execution of arbitrary commands with the privileges of the
user running TWiki (usually the Web server user).
There is no known workaround at this time.
