A PHP application running on the remote web server is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


According to its self-reported version, the instance of Drupal running on the remote web server is 8.5.x prior to 8.5.11, or 8.6.x prior to 8.6.10. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to improper sanitization of data from non-form sources.
