Metasploitable 3: Exploiting HTTP PUT

Oct. 8, 2017 0 comments Hacking Tutorials Pen Testing & Audits

In this hacking tutorial we will be exploiting the HTTP PUT method on one of the Metasploitable 3 webservers to upload files to the webserver. If the HTTP PUT method is enabled on the webserver it can be used to upload a specified resource to the target server, such as a web shell, and execute it. In this tutorial we will look at how to determine if the HTTP PUT method is enabled and we’ll be using several different methods to upload a Meterpreter reverse shell.
