This module enables you to expose Drupal entities as RESTful web services.

RESTWS alters the default page callbacks for entities to provide additional functionality.

A vulnerability in this approach allows an attacker to send specially crafted requests resulting in arbitrary PHP execution.

There are no mitigating factors. This vulnerability can be exploited by anonymous users.
