HP Network Node Manager I PMD Buffer Overflow

Description

This module exploits a stack buffer overflow in HP Network Node Manager I (NNMi). The vulnerability exists in the pmd service, due to the insecure usage of functions like strcpy and strcat while handling stack_option packets with user controlled data. In order to bypass ASLR this module uses a proto_tbl packet to leak an libov pointer from the stack and finally build the ROP chain to avoid NX.

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/misc/hp_nnmi_pmd_bof
msf exploit(hp_nnmi_pmd_bof) > show targets
    ...targets...
msf exploit(hp_nnmi_pmd_bof) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(hp_nnmi_pmd_bof) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(hp_nnmi_pmd_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.
