Apple TV Image Remote Control



This module will show an image on an AppleTV device for a period of time. Some AppleTV devices are actually password-protected, in that case please set the PASSWORD datastore option. For password brute forcing, please see the module auxiliary/scanner/http/appletv_login.

Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use auxiliary/admin/appletv/appletv_display_image
msf auxiliary(appletv_display_image) > show actions
msf auxiliary(appletv_display_image) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(appletv_display_image) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(appletv_display_image) > run 

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
