AppleTV AirPlay Login Utility



This module attempts to authenticate to an AppleTV service with the username, 'AirPlay'. The device has two different access control modes: OnScreen and Password. The difference between the two is the password in OnScreen mode is numeric-only and four digits long, which means when this option is enabled, this option, the module will make sure to cover all of them - from 0000 to 9999. The Password mode is more complex, therefore the usual online bruteforce strategies apply.

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