NoSQLMap – Open Source Audit and Attack NoSQL Databases

by Unallocated Author

NoSQLMap is an open source python based tool, designed to audit and automate injection attacks on NoSQL databases, such as Mongo DB and Couch DB. It can find and exploit various different vulnerabilities in order to disclose data from a site.

Installing NoSQLMap

For installing NoSQLMap, you have to clone the repository from Github.

git clone https://github.com/codingo/NoSQLMap.git

After that, install the python script.

cd NoSQLMap/

python setup.py install

You are good to go now.

Running NoSQLMap

Type the command below to run the tool.

python nosqlmap.py

The interface is easy to read and self-explanatory, but let’s see some basic commands anyway.

Always the first thing you need to check is the first option. Press ‘1‘ and type the options of your target. The basic options are;

  • Set Options for target host IP
  • Set Local MongoDB/Shell IP
  • Set Local Port
  • b – save option file
  • x – Exit

When these options are set, go back to the main interface and type ‘2‘ to list all the access attacks you can use.

  • 1 – Get Server Version and Platform
  • 2 – Enumerate Databases/Collections/Users
  • 3 – Check for GridFS
  • 4 – Clone a Database
  • 5 – Launch Metasploit exploit for MongoDB
  • 6 – Return to Main Menu

As you can see the commands above are pretty easy to use, just type the number of the attack you want to perform and the framework will automate the attack for you.

Give it some time searching all the different attacks and their outputs. This tool is very easy to use after some exploration.

What Bunny rating does it get?

I think NoSQLMap is a must for vulnerability assessment and exploitation of NoSQL databases. Many times you will be in a position that you don’t have the time to go through all the data in a database. Tools like this can provide great value, if used correctly. For this tool I am giving it a 4 out 5 bunnies.

The _ga is asssociated with Google Universal Analytics - which is a significant update to Google's more commonly used analytics service. This cookie is used to distinguish unique users by assigning a randomly generated number as a client identifier. It is included in each page request in a site and used to calculate visitor, session and campaign data for the sites analytics reports. By default it is set to expire after 2 years, although this is customisable by website owners.

The _gat global object is used to create and retrieve tracker objects, from which all other methods are invoked. Therefore the methods in this list should be run only off a tracker object created using the _gat global variable. All other methods should be called using the _gaq global object for asynchronous tracking.

_gid works as a user navigates between web pages, they can use the gtag.js tagging library to record information about the page the user has seen (for example, the page's URL) in Google Analytics. The gtag.js tagging library uses HTTP Cookies to "remember" the user's previous interactions with the web pages.
