Description

This module exploits a vulnerability in the JCE component for Joomla!, which could allow an unauthenticated remote attacker to upload arbitrary files, caused by the fails to sufficiently sanitize user-supplied input. Sending specially-crafted HTTP request, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to upload a malicious PHP script, which could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary PHP code on the vulnerable system. This module has been tested successfully on the JCE Editor 1.5.71 and Joomla 1.5.26.

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