Description

This module exploits a remote command execution on the Legend Perl IRC Bot. This bot has been used as a payload in the Shellshock spam last October 2014. This particular bot has functionalities like NMAP scanning, TCP, HTTP, SQL, and UDP flooding, the ability to remove system logs, and ability to gain root, and VNC scanning. Kevin Stevens, a Senior Threat Researcher at Damballa, has uploaded this script to VirusTotal with a md5 of 11a9f1589472efa719827079c3d13f76.

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