Remote Console on MySQL
From: tester () secfocus com
Date: 5 Apr 2006 05:11:47 -0000

Im doing a pentest and found 3306 open with no password.  I logged in a root using Navcat MYSQL GUI..

I can select one of the test databases and get a remote console,


root () myipaddress does not have privilages to the main mysql database..

My question:

Can you run commands on mysql to interact with the  OS like XP..cmdshell in MSSQL?
