def initialize(info={})
'Name' => 'Western Digital MyCloud multi_uploadify File Upload Vulnerability',
'Description' => %q{
This module exploits a file upload vulnerability found in Western Digital's MyCloud
NAS web administration HTTP service. The /web/jquery/uploader/multi_uploadify.php
PHP script provides multipart upload functionality that is accessible without authentication
and can be used to place a file anywhere on the device's file system. This allows an
attacker the ability to upload a PHP shell onto the device and obtain arbitrary code
execution as root.
