Description

This module exploits a command injection vulnerability in Quest KACE Systems Management Appliance version 8.0.318 (and possibly prior). The `download_agent_installer.php` file allows unauthenticated users to execute arbitrary commands as the web server user `www`. A valid Organization ID is required. The default value is `1`. A valid Windows agent version number must also be provided. If file sharing is enabled, the agent versions are available within the `\kace.local\client\agent_provisioning\windows_platform` Samba share. Additionally, various agent versions are listed on the KACE website. This module has been tested successfully on Quest KACE Systems Management Appliance K1000 version 8.0 (Build 8.0.318).

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/unix/http/quest_kace_systems_management_rce
msf exploit(quest_kace_systems_management_rce) > show targets
    ...targets...
msf exploit(quest_kace_systems_management_rce) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(quest_kace_systems_management_rce) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(quest_kace_systems_management_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.
