PHP code execution and Overshare[point]

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, Spring is in the air: flowers, bees, pollen… a new Metasploit 6.4 release, and now, fresh on the heels of this new release is a bountiful crop of exploits, features, and bug-fixes. Leading the pack is a pair of 2024 PHP code execution vulnerabilities in Artica Proxy and the Bricks Builder WordPress theme, and not to be outshone is a pair of Sharepoint vulnerabilities chained to give unauthenticated code execution as administrator.

Sharepoint Dynamic Proxy Generator Unauth RCE

Authors: Jang and jheysel-r7
Type: Exploit
Pull request: #18721 contributed by jheysel-r7
Path: windows/http/sharepoint_dynamic_proxy_generator_auth_bypass_rce
AttackerKB reference: CVE-2023-24955

Description: This PR adds a module that allows unauthenticated remote code execution as Administrator on Sharepoint 2019 hosts. It performs this by exploiting two vulnerabilities in Sharepoint 2019. First, it uses CVE-2023-29357, an auth bypass patched in June of 2023 to impersonate the Administrator user, then it uses CVE-2023-24955, an RCE patched in May of 2023 to execute commands as Administrator.

Enhancements and features (4)

  • #18925 from sjanusz-r7 - Updates RPC API to include Auxiliary and Exploit modules in session.compatible_modules response.

Bugs fixed (6)

  • #18985 from cgranleese-r7 - Fixes store_valid_credential conditional logic for unix/webapp/wp_admin_shell_upload module.
  • #18992 from adfoster-r7 - Fixes a crash within the postgres version module.
  • #19006 from cgranleese-r7 - This fixes an issue where WMAP plugin module loading was causing failures.
  • #19009 from sjanusz-r7 - Updates modules/exploits/osx/local/persistence to no longer be marked as a compatible module for Windows targets.
  • #19012 from zeroSteiner - This fixes an issue that was reported where msfconsole will fail to start if the user's /etc/hosts file contained a host name ending in a . or containing _ characters.
  • #19015 from zeroSteiner - Previously, we fixed an issue where Metasploit would crash while parsing the hosts file if it ended in unexpected values like . or _. This fixes the same kind of issue in DNS names that enter the hostnames data through a different path by removing any trailing . so they can be used for DNS resolution.

Documentation added (1)

  • #18961 from zgoldman-r7 - This adds documentation for the new SQL and SMB session types.
