Description

This module uses the qconn daemon on QNX systems to gain a shell. The QNX qconn daemon does not require authentication and allows remote users to execute arbitrary operating system commands. This module has been tested successfully on QNX Neutrino 6.5.0 (x86) and 6.5.0 SP1 (x86).

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