ExaGrid Known SSH Key and Default Password

Description

ExaGrid ships a public/private key pair on their backup appliances to allow passwordless authentication to other ExaGrid appliances. Since the private key is easily retrievable, an attacker can use it to gain unauthorized remote access as root. Additionally, this module will attempt to use the default password for root, 'inflection'.

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