Realtek SDK Miniigd UPnP SOAP Command Execution



Different devices using the Realtek SDK with the miniigd daemon are vulnerable to OS command injection in the UPnP SOAP interface. Since it is a blind OS command injection vulnerability, there is no output for the executed command. This module has been tested successfully on a Trendnet TEW-731BR router with emulation.

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