Description

This module abuses a known default password on Cisco UCS Director. The 'scpuser' has the password of 'scpuser', and allows an attacker to login to the virtual appliance via SSH. This module has been tested with Cisco UCS Director virtual machines 6.6.0 and 6.7.0. Note that Cisco also mentions in their advisory that their IMC Supervisor and UCS Director Express are also affected by these vulnerabilities, but this module was not tested with those products.

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