This module exploits a vulnerability in Openfiler v2.x which could be abused to allow authenticated users to execute arbitrary code under the context of the 'openfiler' user. The 'system.html' file uses user controlled data from the 'device' parameter to create a new 'NetworkCard' object. The class constructor in 'network.inc' calls exec() with the supplied data. The 'openfiler' user may 'sudo /bin/bash' without providing a system password.
To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':
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.
