Adobe Flash Player Nellymoser Audio Decoding Buffer Overflow



This module exploits a buffer overflow on Adobe Flash Player when handling nellymoser encoded audio inside a FLV video, as exploited in the wild on June 2015. This module has been tested successfully on: Windows 7 SP1 (32-bit), IE11 and Adobe Flash, Windows 7 SP1 (32-bit), Firefox 38.0.5 and Adobe Flash, Windows 8.1, Firefox 38.0.5 and Adobe Flash, Linux Mint "Rebecca" (32 bits), Firefox 33.0 and Adobe Flash, and Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS, Firefox 35.01, and Adobe Flash Note that this exploit is effective against both CVE-2015-3113 and the earlier CVE-2015-3043, since CVE-2015-3113 is effectively a regression to the same root cause as CVE-2015-3043.

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/multi/browser/adobe_flash_nellymoser_bof
msf exploit(adobe_flash_nellymoser_bof) > show targets
msf exploit(adobe_flash_nellymoser_bof) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(adobe_flash_nellymoser_bof) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(adobe_flash_nellymoser_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.
