Description

This module exploits a remote buffer overflow vulnerability on Belkin Play N750 DB Wireless Dual-Band N+ Router N750 routers. The vulnerability exists in the handling of HTTP queries with long 'jump' parameters addressed to the /login.cgi URL, allowing remote unauthenticated attackers to execute arbitrary code. This module was tested in an emulated environment, using the version 1.10.16.m of the firmware.

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 exploit/linux/http/belkin_login_bof
msf exploit(belkin_login_bof) > show targets
    ...targets...
msf exploit(belkin_login_bof) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(belkin_login_bof) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(belkin_login_bof) > exploit

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.
