Squiz Matrix User Enumeration Scanner



This module attempts to enumerate remote users that exist within the Squiz Matrix and MySource Matrix CMS by sending GET requests for asset IDs e.g. ?a=14 and searching for a valid username eg "~root" or "~test" which is prefixed by a "~" in the response. It will also try to GET the users full name or description, or other information. You may wish to modify ASSETBEGIN and ASSETEND values for greater results, or set VERBOSE. Information gathered may be used for later bruteforce attacks.

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