Roundcube TimeZone Authenticated File Disclosure



Roundcube Webmail allows unauthorized access to arbitrary files on the host's filesystem, including configuration files. This affects all versions from 1.1.0 through version 1.3.2. The attacker must be able to authenticate at the target system with a valid username/password as the attack requires an active session. Tested against version 1.3.2

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