Oracle TNS Listener Checker



This module checks the server for vulnerabilities like TNS Poison. Module sends a server a packet with command to register new TNS Listener and checks for a response indicating an error. If the registration is errored, the target is not vulnerable. Otherwise, the target is vulnerable to malicious registrations.

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