Total.js CMS 12 Widget JavaScript Code Injection



This module exploits a vulnerability in Total.js CMS. The issue is that a user with admin permission can embed a malicious JavaScript payload in a widget, which is evaluated server side, and gain remote code execution.

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