Description

This Metasploit module exploits a remote command execution on the Legend Perl IRC Bot . This bot has been used as a payload in the Shellshock spam last October 2014. This particular bot has functionalities like NMAP scanning, TCP, HTTP, SQL, and UDP flooding, the ability to remove system logs, and ability to gain root, and VNC scanning. Kevin Stevens, a Senior Threat Researcher at Damballa has uploaded this script to VirusTotal with a md5 of 11a9f1589472efa719827079c3d13f76.
