Ubiquitous Devices

Our Rapid7 Labs team pulled the thread on some recent buzz around exploitable Ubiquiti devices, which led to a new scanner module (auxiliary/scanner/ubiquiti/ubiquiti_discover.rb) from jhart-r7. This module uses a simple UDP protocol to identify potentially exploitable Ubiquiti devices on your network, and can return details like MAC and IP address, model info, and firmware version.


Some NUUO NVRmini devices contain a vulnerable web application which can be exploited to gain remote code execution. And the new exploits/multi/http/nuuo_nvrmini_upgrade_rce module can help get you there. Thanks to community member berkdsnr for this contribution!

Cisco Configs

Certain small business routers from Cisco (like the RV320 and RV326 models) may contain firmware vulnerable to unauthenticated, remote retrieval of the configuration file. The new auxiliary/gather/cisco_rv320_config module from our own asoto-r7 can help you gather the configs from such vulnerable devices on your network. Be forewarned that firmware auto-update settings on potential target devices might have already moved them to a patched version of firmware.

Get it

As always, you can update to the latest Metasploit Framework with msfupdate and you can get more details on the changes since the last blog post from GitHub:

We recently-announced the release of Metasploit 5. You can get it by cloning the Metasploit Framework repo (master branch). To install fresh without using git, you can use the open-source-only Nightly Installers or the binary installers (which also include the commercial editions). PLEASE NOTE that the binary installers, and Metasploit Framework versions included in distros such as Kali, Parrot, etc., are based off the Metasploit 4 branch for the time being. Migration is underway, so you can look forward to getting Metasploit 5 in the binary installers and in third-party software distributions soon.
