Id Description
19871 Tellme index.php q_Host Variable Arbitrary Command Option Execution

Tellme contains a flaw that allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary commands. This flaw exists because the application does not validate the 'q_Host' variable upon submission to the 'index.php' script, which may allow a remote attacker to access and execute arbitrary 'whois' command options resulting in a loss of integrity.
