Description

" This module writes an execution trigger to the target's Bash profile. The execution trigger executes a call back payload whenever the target user opens a Bash terminal. A handler is not run automatically, so you must configure an appropriate exploit/multi/handler to receive the callback. "

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