Network Shutdown Module sort_values Credential Dumper



This module will extract user credentials from Network Shutdown Module versions 3.21 and earlier by exploiting a vulnerability found in lib/dbtools.inc, which uses unsanitized user input inside a eval() call. Please note that in order to extract credentials, the vulnerable service must have at least one USV module (an entry in the "nodes" table in mgedb.db).

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