Description

This module exploits a code execution flaw in the Mutiny 5 appliance. The EditDocument servlet provides a file upload function to authenticated users. A directory traversal vulnerability in the same functionality allows for arbitrary file upload, which results in arbitrary code execution with root privileges. In order to exploit the vulnerability a valid user (any role) in the web frontend is required. The module has been tested successfully on the Mutiny 5.0-1.07 appliance.

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