# MySQL / MariaDB / Percona -  Remote Root Code Execution / PrivEsc PoC Exploit
# (CVE-2016-6662) 
# 0ldSQL_MySQL_RCE_exploit.py (ver. 1.0)
#
# For testing purposes only. Do no harm.
#
# Discovered/Coded by:
#
# Dawid Golunski
# http://legalhackers.com
#
#
# This is a limited version of the PoC exploit. It only allows appending to
# existing mysql config files with weak permissions. See V) 1) section of 
# the advisory for details on this vector. 
#
# Full PoC will be released at a later date, and will show how attackers could
# exploit the vulnerability on default installations of MySQL on systems with no
# writable my.cnf config files available.
#
# The upcoming advisory CVE-2016-6663 will also make the exploitation trivial
# for certain low-privileged attackers that do not have FILE privilege.
# 
# See full advisory for details:
