Pandora FMS 7.0 NG 7XX Remote Command Execution Exploit


This Metasploit module exploits a vulnerability (CVE-2020-13851) in Pandora FMS versions 7.0 NG 742, 7.0 NG 743, and 7.0 NG 744 (and perhaps older versions) in order to execute arbitrary commands. This module takes advantage of a command injection vulnerability in th e Events feature of Pandora FMS. This flaw allows users to execute arbitrary commands via the target parameter in HTTP POST requests to the Events function. After authenticating to the target, the module attempts to exploit this flaw by issuing such an HTTP POST request, with the target parameter set to contain the payload. If a shell is obtained, the module will try to obtain the local MySQL database password via a simple grep command on the plaintext /var/www/html/pandora_console/include/config.php file. Valid credentials for a Pandora FMS account are required. The account does not need to have admin privileges. This module has been successfully tested on Pandora 7.0 NG 744 running on CentOS 7 (the official virtual appliance ISO for this version).
