OWA Exchange Web Services (EWS) Login Scanner

Created

Description

This module attempts to log in to the Exchange Web Services, often exposed at https://example.com/ews/, using NTLM authentication. This method is faster and simpler than traditional form-based logins. In most cases, all you need to set is RHOSTS and some combination of user/pass files; the autodiscovery should find the location of the NTLM authentication point as well as the AD domain, and use them accordingly.

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