Identify Queue Manager Name and MQ Version



Run this auxiliary against the listening port of an IBM MQ Queue Manager to identify its name and version. Any channel type can be used to get this information as long as the name of the channel is valid.

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