Description

This module exploits an authentication bypass vulnerability in eXtplorer versions 2.1.0 to 2.1.2 and 2.1.0RC5 when run as a standalone application. This application has an upload feature that allows an authenticated user with administrator roles to upload arbitrary files to any writable directory in the web root. This module uses an authentication bypass vulnerability to upload and execute a file.

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