Apache Rave User Information Disclosure



This module exploits an information disclosure in Apache Rave 0.20 and prior. The vulnerability exists in the RPC API, which allows any authenticated user to disclose information about all the users, including their password hashes. In order to authenticate, the user can provide his own credentials. Also the default users installed with Apache Rave 0.20 will be tried automatically. This module has been successfully tested on Apache Rave 0.20.

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