Dell OpenManage Server Administrator - Arbitrary File Read

Rhino Security Labs

# Exploit Title: Dell OpenManage Server Administrator - Arbitrary File Read
# Date: 4/27/2020
# Exploit Author: Rhino Security Labs
# Version: <= 9.4
# Description: Dell EMC OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA) versions 9.4 and prior contain multiple path traversal vulnerabilities. An unauthenticated remote attacker could potentially exploit these vulnerabilities by sending a crafted Web API request containing directory traversal character sequences to gain file system access on the compromised management station.
# CVE: CVE-2020-5377

# This is a proof of concept for CVE-2020-5377, an arbitrary file read in Dell OpenManage Administrator
# Proof of concept written by: David Yesland @daveysec with Rhino Security Labs
# More information can be found here: 
# A patch for this issue can be found here:
