This module exploits a Remote Command Execution vulnerability in the Drupal CODER Module. Unauthenticated users can execute arbitrary commands under the context of the web server user. The CODER module doesn't sufficiently validate user inputs in a script file that has the PHP extension. A malicious unauthenticated user can make requests directly to this file to execute arbitrary commands. The module does not need to be enabled for this to be exploited. This module was tested against CODER 2.5 with Drupal 7.5 installed on Ubuntu Server.
To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':
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.
