Could be wrong here but I recall a 'system' command that you can use at the mysql> prompt to run OS commands.

Remote Console on MySQL

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,

mysql>

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?
