Oracle TNS Listener SID Bruteforce



This module queries the TNS listener for a valid Oracle database instance name (also known as a SID). Any response other than a "reject" will be considered a success. If a specific SID is provided, that SID will be attempted. Otherwise, SIDs read from the named file will be attempted in sequence instead.

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