Setting module options just got easier!
Rapid7's own Dean Welch added a new option to framework called
RHOST_HTTP_URL, which allows users to set values for multiple URL components, such as
SSL, by specifying a single option value. For example, instead of typing
set RHOSTS example.com,
set RPORT 5678,
set SSL true, you can now accomplish the same thing with the command
set RHOST_HTTP_URL https://example.com:5678. This functionality is currently opt-in. The steps for enabling this feature can be seen within msfconsole’s
help features command.
None of your OFBiz(ness)!
Milestone PR #14000 from our own wvu adds a new module targeting a pre-auth RCE vulnerability in Apache's OFBiz ERP software version 17.12.03. This module exploits CVE-2020-9496, and takes advantage of a Java deserialization method within an unauthenticated XML-RPC interface. Latest OFBiz version 17.12.04 fixed this vuln.
Speaking of usability improvements, Metasploit's RPC module search just got faster! Thanks to an enhancement by Alan Foster, the
module.search RPC call now utilizes the module cache instead of the previous slow search functionality.

- PR #13998 from adfoster-r7 greatly improves the speed of Metasploit's
module.searchRPC call. This updated performance is achieved by searching the module's cache instead of framework's slow search functionality.
- PR #13961 from dwelch-r7 adds a new
RHOST_HTTP_URLoption, which allows users to set values for
SSLby specifying a single URL.
- PR #13846 from dwelch-r7 adds support for Nmap's
vulnersscript, allowing users to import information on targets' vulnerabilities into the database.
- PR #14007 from bcoles fixes a directory path traversal vulnerability with
Msf::Post::File.file_local_writethat could lead to remote code execution.
- PR #14006 from 5tevebaker fixes an incorrect executable path in the
post/osx/gather/enum_osxmodule, which caused failures when downloading keychains.

- PR #13974 from dwelch-r7 fixes an authentication bug with the
lib/metasploit/framework/login_scanner/winrmmodule which caused failures with servers that did not accept 'Basic' authentication.
- PR #13951 from gwillcox-r7 improves the error message that occurs with
msfvenomwhen a payload module is not specified.
