any application! The VIP4Gb is a powerful 4G LTE device compatible on any cellular network.
It provides robust and secure wireless communication of Serial, Ethernet & WiFi data.

Desc: Due to the hidden and undocumented File Editor (Filesystem Browser) shell script
'system-editor.sh' an attacker can leverage this issue to read, modify or delete arbitrary
files on the system. Input passed thru the 'path' and 'savefile', 'edit' and 'delfile' GET
and POST parameters is not properly sanitized before being used to modify files. This can
be exploited by an authenticated attacker to read or modify arbitrary files on the affected

Tested on: httpd-ssl-1.0.0
