Snare Lite for Windows Registry Access



This module uses the Registry Dump feature of the Snare Lite for Windows service on 6161/TCP to retrieve the Windows registry. The Dump Registry functionality is unavailable in Snare Enterprise. Note: The Dump Registry functionality accepts only one connected client at a time. Requesting a large key/hive will cause the service to become unresponsive until the server completes the request.

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