Splunk is the data platform that powers enterprise observability, unified security, and limitless custom applications in hybrid environments.
- All Splunk 5.x versions
- Tested on Centos 5.8 with:
- Splunk version 5.0.1, build 143156
This module exploits a feature of Splunk whereby a custom application can be uploaded through the web-based interface. Through the script search command, a user can call commands defined in their custom application which includes arbitrary Perl or python code. To abuse, this behavior, a valid Splunk user with the admin role is required. By default, this module uses the credential of admin:changeme, the default Administrator credential for Splunk.
Note that the Splunk web interface runs as SYSTEM on Windows, or as root on Linux by default. This module has only been tested successfully against Splunk 5.0.
