This module leverages an insecure setting to get remote code
execution on the target OS in the context of the user running Gogs.
This is possible when the current user is allowed to create `git
hooks`, which is the default for administrative users. For

To achieve code execution, the module authenticates to the Gogs web
interface, creates a temporary repository, sets a `post-receive` git
hook with the payload and creates a dummy file in the repository.
This last action will trigger the git hook and execute the payload.
Everything is done through the web interface.
No mitigation has been implemented so far (latest stable version is
This module has been tested successfully against version 0.12.3 on
docker. Windows version could not be tested since the git hook feature
seems to be broken.
