Description

This module exploits a vulnerability found in OpenEMR 4.1.1 By abusing the ofc_upload_image.php file from the openflashchart library, a malicious user can upload a file to the tmp-upload-images directory without any authentication, which results in arbitrary code execution. The module has been tested successfully on OpenEMR 4.1.1 over Ubuntu 10.04.

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