ManageEngine Eventlog Analyzer Managed Hosts Administrator Credential Disclosure



ManageEngine Eventlog Analyzer from v7 to v9.9 b9002 has two security vulnerabilities that allow an unauthenticated user to obtain the superuser password of any managed Windows and AS/400 hosts. This module abuses both vulnerabilities to collect all the available usernames and passwords. First the agentHandler servlet is abused to get the hostid and slid of each device (CVE-2014-6038); then these numeric IDs are used to extract usernames and passwords by abusing the hostdetails servlet (CVE-2014-6039). Note that on version 7, the TARGETURI has to be prepended with /event.

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