Microsoft Windows EOT Font Table Directory Integer Overflow



This module exploits an integer overflow flaw in the Microsoft Windows Embedded OpenType font parsing code located in win32k.sys. Since the kernel itself parses embedded web fonts, it is possible to trigger a BSoD from a normal web page when viewed with Internet Explorer.

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/windows/browser/ms09_065_eot_integer
msf auxiliary(ms09_065_eot_integer) > show actions
msf auxiliary(ms09_065_eot_integer) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(ms09_065_eot_integer) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(ms09_065_eot_integer) > 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.
