Description

This module exploits a code execution flaw in Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 10 SP3 and 11 SP2. The vulnerability exists in the ZENworks Control Center application, allowing an unauthenticated attacker to upload a malicious file outside of the TEMP directory and then make a second request that allows for arbitrary code execution. This module has been tested successfully on Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 10 SP3 and 11 SP2 on Windows 2003 SP2 and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP3.

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