ManageEngine Support Center Plus Directory Traversal



This module exploits a directory traversal vulnerability found in ManageEngine Support Center Plus build 7916 and lower. The module will create a support ticket as a normal user, attaching a link to a file on the server. By requesting our own attachment, it's possible to retrieve any file on the filesystem with the same privileges as Support Center Plus is running. On Windows this is always with SYSTEM privileges.

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