CA Arcserve D2D GWT RPC Credential Information Disclosure



This module exploits an information disclosure vulnerability in the CA Arcserve D2D r15 web server. The information disclosure can be triggered by sending a specially crafted RPC request to the homepage servlet. This causes CA Arcserve to disclosure the username and password in cleartext used for authentication. This username and password pair are Windows credentials with Administrator access.

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