Login brute-force utility

Jan Rude added a new module that gives users the ability to brute-force login for Linux Syncovery. This expands Framework's capability to scan logins to Syncovery, a popular web GUI for backups.

WordPress extension SQL injection module

Cydave, destr4ct, and jheysel-r7 contributed a new module that takes advantage of a vulnerable WordPress extension. This allows Framework users to take advantage of CVE-2022-0739, leveraging a UNION-based SQL injection to gather hashed passwords of WordPress users. For vulnerable versions, anyone who can access the BookingPress plugin page will also have access to all the credentials in the database, yikes! There are currently 3,000 active installs of the plugin, which isn't a huge number by WordPress standards—but the ease of remote exploitation makes it a fun addition to the framework.

Enhancements and features (2)

  • #17214 from h00die - This PR improves upon the data gathered on a vCenter server originally implemented in #16871, including library integration, optimization, and de-duplication.
  • #17332 from bcoles - Updates windows/gather/enum_proxy to support non-Meterpreter sessions (shell, PowerShell).

Bugs fixed (5)

  • #17183 from rbowes-r7 - This adds some small changes, cleanups, and fixes to the linux/http/zimbra_unrar_cve_2022_30333 and linux/http/zimbra_cpio_cve_2022_41352 Zimbra exploit modules, along with linux/local/zimbra_slapper_priv_esc documentation. Particularly, this fixes an issue that prevented the exploit modules from working properly when the handler was prematurely shut down.
  • #17305 from cgranleese-r7 - Updates Metasploit's RPC to automatically choose an appropriate payload if module.execute is invoked without a payload set. This mimics the functionality of msfconsole.
  • #17323 from h00die - Fixes a bug when attempting to detect enlightenment_sys in exploits/linux/local/ubuntu_enlightenment_mount_priv_esc.
  • #17330 from zeroSteiner - This fixes an issue in the ProxyShell module, which limited the email enumeration to 100 entries. Now, it correctly enumerates all the emails before finding one that is suitable for exploitation.
  • #17342 from gwillcox-r7 - This adds the necessary control to the search queries used to find vulnerable certificate templates in an AD CS environment. Prior to this, non-privileged users would not be able to read the security descriptor field.
