Description

This module will use the Microsoft XMLDOM object to enumerate a remote machine's filenames. It will try to do so against Internet Explorer 8 and Internet Explorer 9. To use it, you must supply your own list of file paths. Each file path should look like this: c:\\windows\\system32\\calc.exe

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/ms14_052_xmldom
msf auxiliary(ms14_052_xmldom) > show actions
    ...actions...
msf auxiliary(ms14_052_xmldom) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(ms14_052_xmldom) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(ms14_052_xmldom) > 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.
