HP SiteScope SOAP Call getFileInternal Remote File Access



This module exploits an authentication bypass vulnerability in HP SiteScope to retrieve an arbitrary file from the remote server. It is accomplished by calling the getFileInternal operation available through the APISiteScopeImpl AXIS service. This module has been successfully tested on HP SiteScope 11.20 over Windows 2003 SP2 and Linux Centos 6.3.

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