Description

This module exploits a universal cross-site scripting (UXSS) vulnerability found in Internet Explorer 10 and 11. By default, you will steal the cookie from TARGET_URI (which cannot have X-Frame-Options or it will fail). You can also have your own custom JavaScript by setting the CUSTOMJS option. Lastly, you might need to configure the URIHOST option if you are behind NAT.

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/gather/ie_uxss_injection
msf auxiliary(ie_uxss_injection) > show actions
    ...actions...
msf auxiliary(ie_uxss_injection) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(ie_uxss_injection) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(ie_uxss_injection) > 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.
