Summary

The remote port seems to be running some form of shell script, with some provided user input. The input is not stripped for such meta characters as `' etc. This would allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code.

Solution

Solution

Make sure all meta characters are filtered out, or close the port for access from untrusted networks
