ClanSphere 2011.3 Local File Inclusion Vulnerability



This module exploits a directory traversal flaw found in Clansphere 2011.3. The application fails to handle the cs_lang parameter properly, which can be used to read any file outside the virtual directory.

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