Oracle Job Scheduler Named Pipe Command Execution

Oracle Job Scheduler Named Pipe Command Execution



This module exploits the Oracle Job Scheduler to execute arbitrary commands. The Job Scheduler is implemented via the component extjob.exe which listens on a named pipe called "orcljsex" and execute arbitrary commands received over this channel via CreateProcess(). In order to connect to the Named Pipe remotely, SMB access is required. Note that the Job Scheduler is disabled in default installations.

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