Cisco RV Series Auth Bypass and Command Injection

Thanks to community contributor neterum, Metasploit framework just gained an awesome new module which targets Cisco Small Business RV Series Routers. The module actually exploits two vulnerabilities, an authentication bypass CVE-2022-20705 and a command injection vulnerability CVE-2022-20707 in order to achieve code execution in the context of user www-data.
