Description

This module exploits a file upload vulnerability found in Western Digital's MyCloud NAS web administration HTTP service. The /web/jquery/uploader/multi_uploadify.php PHP script provides multipart upload functionality that is accessible without authentication and can be used to place a file anywhere on the device's file system. This allows an attacker the ability to upload a PHP shell onto the device and obtain arbitrary code execution as 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/wd_mycloud_multiupload_upload
msf exploit(wd_mycloud_multiupload_upload) > show targets
    ...targets...
msf exploit(wd_mycloud_multiupload_upload) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(wd_mycloud_multiupload_upload) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(wd_mycloud_multiupload_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.
