Script http-vuln-cve2010-2861

Script types: portrule
Categories: intrusive, vuln

Script Summary

Executes a directory traversal attack against a ColdFusion server and tries to grab the password hash for the administrator user. It then uses the salt value (hidden in the web page) to create the SHA1 HMAC hash that the web server needs for authentication as admin. You can pass this value to the ColdFusion server as the admin without cracking the password hash.

This script relies on the service being identified as HTTP or HTTPS. If the
ColdFusion server you run this against is on a port other than 80/tcp or 443/tcp
then use "nmap -sV" so that nmap discovers the port as an HTTP server.
