It’s open season on Openfire with a new RCE module in Metasploit

Metasploit Weekly Wrap up

This week the Metasploit framework saw the addition of an RCE module which exploits path traversal vulnerability in the instant messaging and group chat server, Openfire. The module was submitted by the one and only community contributor h00die-gr3y. The module targets Openfire’s unauthenticated setup environment, in an already configured Openfire environment, to access restricted pages in the Admin Console reserved for administrative users. This module uses a path traversal vulnerability to create a new admin user that is used to upload a Openfire management plugin weaponized with a Java native payload that triggers an RCE. The module is quite flexible and will get you shells when Openfire is running in Windows, Linux and on a variety of different Java versions.
