Nagios XI Scanner



The module detects the version of Nagios XI applications and suggests matching exploit modules based on the version number. Since Nagios XI applications only reveal the version to authenticated users, valid credentials for a Nagios XI account are required. Alternatively, it is possible to provide a specific Nagios XI version number via the `VERSION` option. In that case, the module simply suggests matching exploit modules and does not probe the target(s).

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