    Cool Finding a Linux Shell with Google

    PHP Shell tries to give you a shell wrapped in a PHP script. It's a tool you can use to execute commands on your remote webserver, even if you don't have normal telnet or SSH access.

    This tool is a double-edged sword. It can be very useful for webmasters and administrators to quickly issue commands on their linux systems, however, this great tool in the hands of a hacker can be used to grant instant shell access (with out even really having to work for it). :lol:

    Ok, the above information is useful, but how is it useful to me you ask? I don't know where I'd find this on a remote server. Lets bring Google into our problem and see if we can't yeild hundreds if not thousands of results for phpshell.php (which is the actual script for PHP Shell). A simple query like the one I ran here: shows that there are quite a few results for phpshell.php , some of them may be protected, many of them are not. Which ones you ask? That's for a whitehat to wonder and a blackhat to find out.
