Schneider Modicon Quantum Password Recovery



The Schneider Modicon Quantum series of Ethernet cards store usernames and passwords for the system in files that may be retrieved via backdoor access. This module is based on the original 'modiconpass.rb' Basecamp module from DigitalBond.

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