Description

This module exploits an authenticated privilege escalation vulnerability in the iControl API on the F5 BIG-IP LTM (and likely other F5 devices). This requires valid credentials and the Resource Administrator role. The exploit should work on BIG-IP 11.3.0 - 11.6.0, (11.5.x < 11.5.3 HF2 or 11.6.x < 11.6.0 HF6, see references for more details)

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/f5_icall_cmd
msf exploit(f5_icall_cmd) > show targets
    ...targets...
msf exploit(f5_icall_cmd) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(f5_icall_cmd) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(f5_icall_cmd) > 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.
