Grafana Plugin Path Traversal



Grafana versions 8.0.0-beta1 through 8.3.0 prior to 8.0.7, 8.1.8, 8.2.7, or 8.3.1 are vulnerable to directory traversal through the plugin URL. A valid plugin ID is required, but many are installed by default.

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