Zend Server Java Bridge Design Flaw Remote Code Execution



This module abuses a flaw in the Zend Java Bridge Component of the Zend Server Framework. By sending a specially crafted packet, an attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code. NOTE: This module has only been tested with the Win32 build of the software.

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