Kaseya VSA Master Administrator Account Creation



This module abuses the setAccount page on Kaseya VSA between 7 and 9.1 to create a new Master Administrator account. Normally this page is only accessible via the localhost interface, but the application does nothing to prevent this apart from attempting to force a redirect. This module has been tested with Kaseya VSA v7.0.0.17, v8.0.0.10 and v9.0.0.3.

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/http/kaseya_master_admin
msf auxiliary(kaseya_master_admin) > show actions
msf auxiliary(kaseya_master_admin) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(kaseya_master_admin) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(kaseya_master_admin) > 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.
