NFR Agent FSFUI Record Arbitrary Remote File Access



NFRAgent.exe, a component of Novell File Reporter (NFR), allows remote attackers to retrieve arbitrary text files via a directory traversal while handling requests to /FSF/CMD with an FSFUI record with UICMD 126. This module has been tested successfully against NFR Agent (File Reporter 1.0.2) and NFR Agent (File Reporter 1.0.1).

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