- Metasploit Modules Related To CVE-2015-8612

blueman set_dhcp_handler D-Bus Privilege Escalation
This module attempts to gain root privileges by exploiting a Python code injection vulnerability in blueman versions prior to 2.0.3. The `org.blueman.Mechanism.EnableNetwork` D-Bus interface exposes the `set_dhcp_handler` function which uses user input in a call to `eval`, without sanitization, resulting in arbitrary code execution as root. This module has been tested successfully with blueman version 1.23 on Debian 8 Jessie (x64).
