A while ago I wrote about more efficient brute forcing if mod_negotiation is enabled. Also released a python script to automate this. Well now I’ve written some metasploit auxiliary modules that perform the same task. One module can be used to scan ranges for web servers that have it enabled, the other module can be used to actually brute force files. You can find them on github:
I’ve also made a redmine ticket on metasploit and submitted them, if you are lazy and just want to wait until metasploit includes them. Assuming they do, after all it’s my first attempt at contributing to metasploit and my code might not be up to the standards.
For the ones paying attention to every detail, yes I fucked up and made a typo while submitting the ticket :)
If you want to use them you can place them in the following directory:
After you’ve place them there, just fire up metasploit and perform a search for negotiation, they should show up in the results. If something goes wrong, read the code I didn’t do a lot of error checking. If you are wondering why I choose to make modules for the mod_negotiation issue…like always I wanted to learn something new and I was familiar with it so was more confident I could implement them. If it all went well it should all look like the following:
