{{ ''.__class__.__mro__[1].__subclasses__()[276]('whoami',shell=True,stdout=-1).communicate()[0].strip()}} }}

2 ) Create a new page by specifying the created as template.

3 ) Use the preview function to check the sample page with the specified templates.

# Impact
Since attackers can execute arbitrary commands on the target environment, they can.
1.Steal sensitive files on the server.
2.Browse like /etc/passwd file and configure it to allow SSH connections as an OS user.
3.Use the server as a stepping stone for another attack and perform malicious actions.
4.Encrypt all content in the server and demand money.
