Ektron CMS400.NET Default Password Scanner



Ektron CMS400.NET is a web content management system based on .NET. This module tests for installations that are utilizing default passwords set by the vendor. Additionally, it has the ability to brute force user accounts. Note that Ektron CMS400.NET, by default, enforces account lockouts for regular user account after a number of failed attempts.

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/ektron_cms400net
msf auxiliary(ektron_cms400net) > show actions
msf auxiliary(ektron_cms400net) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(ektron_cms400net) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(ektron_cms400net) > 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.
