Description

This module exploits a PHP code execution vulnerability in php-Charts version 1.0 which could be abused to allow users to execute arbitrary PHP code under the context of the webserver user. The 'url.php' script calls eval() with user controlled data from any HTTP GET parameter name.

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