					This module exploits a vulnerability in PhpMyAdmin's setup
				feature which allows an attacker to inject arbitrary PHP
				code into a configuration file. The original advisory says
				the vulnerability is present in phpMyAdmin versions 2.11.x
				< 2.11.9.5 and 3.x < 3.1.3.1; this module was tested on
				3.0.1.1.

				The file where our payload is written
				(phpMyAdmin/config/config.inc.php) is not directly used by
				the system, so it may be a good idea to either delete it or
				copy the running config (phpMyAdmin/config.inc.php) over it
				after successful exploitation.
