The php file ./network/isp/isp_update_edit.php dose not properly validate the user input which leads to to shell command injection.
below is the vulnerable code snipet "<td><input name="des" id="des" value="<?php echo $item['des'];?>" type="text" <?php echo $item['des'];?> size="50" maxlength="<?php echo XML_MAX_DESC_LEN;?>"/><"
