Metasploitable – Exploiting mysql service

root@kali:~# nmap -sV -n -p 3306

You can also use nmap scripts to gather more information.

Let’s attempt to identify mysql root password.

Use the login & password to connect to mysql database.

We will now use mysql load_file function to attempt reading contents of arbitrary files from the filesystem. Let’s try to access /etc/shadow file.

As seen above, shadow file could not be read. Let’s try and read /etc/passwd file.
