Novell ZENworks Asset Management 7.5 Configuration Access



This module exploits a hardcoded user and password for the GetConfig maintenance task in Novell ZENworks Asset Management 7.5. The vulnerability exists in the Web Console and can be triggered by sending a specially crafted request to the rtrlet component, allowing a remote unauthenticated user to retrieve the configuration parameters of Novell Zenworks Asset Management, including the database credentials in clear text. This module has been successfully tested on Novell ZENworks Asset Management 7.5.

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