Zimbra Collaboration Server LFI



This module exploits a local file inclusion on Zimbra 8.0.2 and 7.2.2. The vulnerability allows an attacker to get the LDAP credentials from the localconfig.xml file. The stolen credentials allow the attacker to make requests to the service/admin/soap API. This can then be used to create an authentication token for the admin web interface. This access can be used to achieve remote code execution. This module has been tested on Zimbra Collaboration Server 8.0.2 with Ubuntu Server 12.04.

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