This module exploits a well known remote code execution exploit after establishing encrypted control communications with a Data Protector agent. This allows exploitation of Data Protector agents that have been configured to only use encrypted control communications. This exploit works by executing the payload with Microsoft PowerShell so will only work against Windows Vista or newer. Tested against Data Protector 9.0 installed on Windows Server 2008 R2.
To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':
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.
