Microsoft IIS HTTP Internal IP Disclosure



Collect any leaked internal IPs by requesting commonly redirected locations from IIS. CVE-2000-0649 references IIS 5.1 (win2k, XP) and older. However, in newer servers such as IIS 7+, this occurs when the alternateHostName is not set or misconfigured. Also collects internal IPs leaked from the PROPFIND method in certain IIS versions.

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