Riverbed SteelCentral NetProfiler/NetExpress Remote Code Execution

Description

This module exploits three separate vulnerabilities found in the Riverbed SteelCentral NetProfiler/NetExpress virtual appliances to obtain remote command execution as the root user. A SQL injection in the login form can be exploited to add a malicious user into the application's database. An attacker can then exploit a command injection vulnerability in the web interface to obtain arbitrary code execution. Finally, an insecure configuration of the sudoers file can be abused to escalate privileges to root.

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