VMTurbo Operations Manager vmtadmin.cgi Remote Command Execution



VMTurbo Operations Manager 4.6 and prior are vulnerable to unauthenticated OS Command injection in the web interface. Use reverse payloads for the most reliable results. Since it is a blind OS command injection vulnerability, there is no output for the executed command when using the cmd generic payload. Port binding payloads are disregarded due to the restrictive firewall settings. This module has been tested successfully on VMTurbo Operations Manager versions 4.5 and 4.6.

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