ManageEngine Eventlog Analyzer Arbitrary File Upload



This module exploits a file upload vulnerability in ManageEngine Eventlog Analyzer. The vulnerability exists in the agentUpload servlet which accepts unauthenticated file uploads and handles zip file contents in an insecure way. By combining both weaknesses a remote attacker can achieve remote code execution. This module has been tested successfully on versions v7.0 - v9.9 b9002 in Windows and Linux. Versions between 7.0 and < 8.1 are only exploitable via EAR deployment in the JBoss server, while versions 8.1+ are only exploitable via a JSP upload.

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