Apache Jetspeed Arbitrary File Upload

This module exploits the unsecured User Manager REST API and a ZIP file path traversal in Apache Jetspeed-2, version 2.3.0 and unknown earlier versions, to upload and execute a shell. Note: this exploit will create, use, and then delete a new admin user. Warning: in testing, exploiting the file upload clobbered the web interface beyond repair. No workaround has been found yet. Use this module at your own risk. No check will be implemented.
