Splunk Web Interface Login Utility



This module simply attempts to login to a Splunk web interface. Please note the free version of Splunk actually does not require any authentication, in that case the module will abort trying. Also, some Splunk applications still have the default credential 'admin:changeme' written on the login page. If this default credential is found, the module will also store that information, and then move on to trying more passwords.

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