ManageEngine Multiple Products Arbitrary Directory Listing



This module exploits a directory listing information disclosure vulnerability in the FailOverHelperServlet on ManageEngine OpManager, Applications Manager and IT360. It makes a recursive listing, so it will list the whole drive if you ask it to list / in Linux or C:\ in Windows. This vulnerability is unauthenticated on OpManager and Applications Manager, but authenticated in IT360. This module will attempt to login using the default credentials for the administrator and guest accounts; alternatively you can provide a pre-authenticated cookie or a username / password combo. For IT360 targets enter the RPORT of the OpManager instance (usually 8300). This module has been tested on both Windows and Linux with several different versions. Windows paths have to be escaped with 4 backslashes on the command line. There is a companion module that allows for arbitrary file download. This vulnerability has been fixed in Applications Manager v11.9 b11912 and OpManager 11.6.

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