TrendMicro OfficeScanNT Listener Traversal Arbitrary File Access



This module tests for directory traversal vulnerability in the UpdateAgent function in the OfficeScanNT Listener (TmListen.exe) service in Trend Micro OfficeScan. This allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files as SYSTEM via dot dot sequences in an HTTP request.

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