Description

This module exploits an authentication bypass in HP iLO 4 1.00 to 2.50, triggered by a buffer overflow in the Connection HTTP header handling by the web server. Exploiting this vulnerability gives full access to the REST API, allowing arbitrary accounts creation.

Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use auxiliary/admin/hp/hp_ilo_create_admin_account
msf auxiliary(hp_ilo_create_admin_account) > show actions
    ...actions...
msf auxiliary(hp_ilo_create_admin_account) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(hp_ilo_create_admin_account) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(hp_ilo_create_admin_account) > run 

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
