RE: Remote Console on MySQL

I don't think the system command in mysql came into effect until
mysql4.x - use 'system <command>'.

Throw away the gui, and use a cli. :) it makes it a bit easier.

Subject: 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?
