Barracuda Multiple Product "locale" Directory Traversal



This module exploits a directory traversal vulnerability present in several Barracuda products, including the Barracuda Spam and Virus Firewall, Barracuda SSL VPN, and the Barracuda Web Application Firewall. By default, this module will attempt to download the Barracuda configuration file.

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