HP SiteScope SOAP Call getSiteScopeConfiguration Configuration Access



This module exploits an authentication bypass vulnerability in HP SiteScope which allows to retrieve the HP SiteScope configuration, including administrative credentials. It is accomplished by calling the getSiteScopeConfiguration operation available through the APISiteScopeImpl AXIS service. The HP SiteScope Configuration is retrieved as file containing Java serialization data. This module has been tested successfully 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_getsitescopeconfiguration
msf auxiliary(hp_sitescope_getsitescopeconfiguration) > show actions
msf auxiliary(hp_sitescope_getsitescopeconfiguration) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(hp_sitescope_getsitescopeconfiguration) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(hp_sitescope_getsitescopeconfiguration) > 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.
