IBM OpenAdmin Tool SOAP welcomeServer PHP Code Execution

This Metasploit module exploits an unauthenticated remote PHP code execution vulnerability in IBM OpenAdmin Tool included with IBM Informix versions 11.5, 11.7, and 12.1. The 'welcomeServer' SOAP service does not properly validate user input in the 'new_home_page' parameter of the 'saveHomePage' method allowing arbitrary PHP code to be written to the config.php file. The config.php file is executed in most pages within the application, and accessible directly via the web root, resulting in code execution. This Metasploit module has been tested successfully on IBM OpenAdmin Tool 3.14 on Informix 12.10 Developer Edition (SUSE Linux 11) virtual appliance.

This module exploits an unauthenticated remote PHP code execution
vulnerability in IBM OpenAdmin Tool included with IBM Informix
versions 11.5, 11.7, and 12.1.

The 'welcomeServer' SOAP service does not properly validate user input
in the 'new_home_page' parameter of the 'saveHomePage' method allowing
arbitrary PHP code to be written to the config.php file. The config.php
file is executed in most pages within the application, and accessible
directly via the web root, resulting in code execution.

This module has been tested successfully on IBM OpenAdmin Tool 3.14
on Informix 12.10 Developer Edition (SUSE Linux 11) virtual appliance.
