Weekly Update

Disclosures for SuperMicro IPMI On the heels of last week's bundle of FOSS disclosures [/2013/10/30/seven-foss-disclosures-part-one], we've gone a totally different direction this week with a new round of disclosures. Today, we're concentrating on a single vendor which ships firmware for Baseboard Management Controllers (BMCs): Supermicro, and their Supermicro IPMI firmware. You can read up on the details on HD's blog post [/2013/11/06/supermicro-ipmi-firmware-vulnerabilities] which covers the

Weekly Update: Meterpreter Updates, VMWare, the OSX spycam, Retabbing, and more!

Meterpreter Updates This is a big week for Meterpreter. For starters, we've landed a new Meterpreter Python payload [] . Yes, yes, I know, you thought that Metasploit was all Ruby all the time, but this and the Python payloads for bind shells from Spencer McIntyre [] should help out on advancing the state of Meterpreter by leaps and bounds. Despite Metasploit's m

Weekly Update: Apple OSX Privilege Escalation

Sudo password bypass on OSX This week's update includes a nifty local exploit for OSX, the sudo bug described in CVE-2013-1775. We don't have nearly enough of these Apple desktop exploits, and it's always useful to disabuse the Apple-based cool-kids web app developer crowd of the notion that their computing platform of choice is bulletproof. Joe Vennix [], the principle author of this module, is, in fact, of that very same Apple-based developer crowd, and usually bu

Weekly Update: Cooperative Disclosure and Assessing Joomla

Cooperative Disclosure I'm in attendance this year at Rapid7's UNITED Security Summit [], and the conversations I'm finding myself in are tending to revolve around vulnerability disclosure. While Metasploit doesn't traffic in zero-day vulnerabilities every day, it happens often enough that we have a disclosure policy [] that we stick to when we get a hold of newly uncovered vulnerabilities. What's not talked about in that disclosure p

Metasploit Update: Those Sneaky IPMI Devices

IPMI, in my network? This week's update features a set of tools for auditing your IPMI infrastructure. "Phew, I'm glad I'm not one of those suckers," you might be thinking to yourself. Well, the thing about IPMI (aka, the Intelligent Platform Management Interface) is that it's just a skootch more esoteric than most protocols, and even experienced server administrators may not be aware of it. Do you use server hardware from IBM, Dell, or HP? Have you ever had to use IBM's Remote Supervisor adapte

Metasploit Update: Weaponizing Local Exploits

Weaponizing Local Exploits This week's update features an exploit for Tavis @taviso [] Ormandy's vulnerability in the EPATHOBJ::pprFlattenRec [] function, which lives in win32k.sys on pretty much any Windows machine you're likely to run into.

Weekly Update: Smaller is Better

In this week's episode, the role of Tod Beardsley will be played by egypt. Smaller is better Perhaps the most prominent addition to the framework this week is not an addition at all, but rather a deletion. We've been working toward a slimmer, more manageable source tree for a while now, and as part of that effort, we recently removed a pile of old-and-busted unit tests. This update goes a bit further, moving source code for some compiled payloads into seperate repositories. Metasploit's version
