Oracle Forms and Reports Remote Code Execution



This module uses two vulnerabilities in Oracle Forms and Reports to get remote code execution on the host. The showenv url can be used to disclose information about a server. A second vulnerability that allows arbitrary reading and writing to the host filesystem can then be used to write a shell from a remote url to a known local path disclosed from the previous vulnerability. The local path being accessible from an URL allows an attacker to perform the remote code execution using, for example, a .jsp shell. This module was tested successfully on Windows and Oracle Forms and Reports 10.1.

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