The exploit was a pre-auth SQL Injection Vulnerability which, if exploited, would allow the attacker to insert arbitrary data in the database, and through that execute PHP code without any previous power.

A crash course in crashes
by Shiro 274 days, 20 hours ago
In this post I'd like to shed some light and give a quick introduction to what crashes are, and how they affect testing as there's been quite some people asking me questions on this topic. Instead of answering each person individually we decided to make this hopefully informative blog post.
