          This module exploits a command injection vulnerability (CVE-2020-35578) in the `/admin/monitoringplugins.php`
          page of Nagios XI versions prior to 5.8.0 when uploading plugins. Successful exploitation allows
          an authenticated admin user to achieve remote code execution as the `apache` user by uploading
          a malicious plugin.

          Valid credentials for a Nagios XI admin user are required. This module has
          been successfully tested against Nagios versions XI 5.3.0 and 5.7.5, both
          running on CentOS 7.
