    Lightbulb [Video] Metasploitable - TomCat

    What is this?
    This video demonstrates an attack on the TomCat service on the metasploitable hackable box.

    "Metasploitable is an Ubuntu 8.04 server install on a VMWare 6.5 image. A number of vulnerable packages are included, including an install of tomcat 5.5 (with weak credentials), distcc, tikiwiki, twiki, and an older mysql." -

    "Apache Tomcat is an open source software implementation of the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies. The Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages specifications are developed under the Java Community Process." -

    > Use Nmap to scan the network (gathering information)
    > Use Nmap to do a more detailed scan of the target (gathering information)
    > Use Metasploit to brute force the login (gaining access)
    > Use Metasploit to send a payload (remote access)
    > *I cheated a little bit here as I had used nessus in a previous scan to discover "Debian OpenSSH/OpenSSL Package Random Number Generator Weakness"*
    > Via the payload it is possible to capture the SSH Key and compare it against the weak keys *Just like pWnOS* (escalating privileges)
    > Connect via SSH as root (complete access)
    > Prove complete access by cracking the shadow file with John The Ripper (then prove it by connecting via SSH using one of the newly acquired accounts)

    What do I need?
