Zimbra zmslapd Privilege Escalation

Posted on 10 August 2022

This Metasploit module exploits CVE-2022-37393, which is a vulnerability in Zimbra's sudo configuration that permits the zimbra user to execute the zmslapd binary as root with arbitrary parameters. As part of its intended functionality, zmslapd can load a user-defined configuration file, which includes plugins in the form of .so files, which also execute as root.
