REMOTE CODE EXECUTION
This is where the intruder uses a vulnerability on your scripts to attack a webserver and executes arbitary commands. We can have a few snapshots of how it can be done. Check here.
Note that this is a very old bug and alot of servers are already patched against them but u will find a number of servers and sites still vulnerable to this.
Remote Code Execution also leads to others attacks, Like Local File Inclusions, Remote File Inclusions due to a method we call Gratuitous File Uploads.
