Description

This module exploits a metacharacter shell injection vulnerability in the Accellion File Transfer appliance. This vulnerability is triggered when a user-provided 'oauth_token' is passed into a system() call within a mod_perl handler. This module exploits the '/tws/getStatus' endpoint. Other vulnerable handlers include '/seos/find.api', '/seos/put.api', and /seos/mput.api'. This issue was confirmed on version FTA_9_11_200, but may apply to previous versions as well. This issue was fixed in software update FTA_9_11_210.

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 exploit/linux/http/accellion_fta_getstatus_oauth
msf exploit(accellion_fta_getstatus_oauth) > show targets
    ...targets...
msf exploit(accellion_fta_getstatus_oauth) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(accellion_fta_getstatus_oauth) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(accellion_fta_getstatus_oauth) > exploit

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.
