I still like to MOVEit MOVEit

This week, our very own sfewer-r7 added a new exploit module that leverages an authentication bypass vulnerability in the MOVEit Transfer SFTP service (CVE-2024-5806). It is possible to authenticate to the SFTP service as any user as long as a valid username is known and the "Remote Access Rules" allows the attacker IP address. On successful attack, it is possible to access any file on the SFTP server that the user has permission to access. The module lets you list directories and display (or download) files.

The following version of MOVEit Transfer are affected:

  • MOVEit Transfer 2023.0.x (fixed in 2023.0.11)
  • MOVEit Transfer 2023.1.x (fixed in 2023.1.6)
  • MOVEit Transfer 2024.0.x (fixed in 2024.0.2)
