Metasploit msfd Remote Code Execution via Browser

Metasploit's msfd-service makes it possible to get a msfconsole-like interface over a TCP socket. This module connects to the msfd-socket through the victim's browser. To execute msfconsole-commands in JavaScript from a web application, this module places the payload in the POST-data. These POST-requests can be sent cross-domain and can therefore be sent to localhost on the victim's machine. The msfconsole-command to execute code is 'rbi -e "CODE"'. Exploitation when the browser is running on Windows is unreliable and the exploit is only usable when IE is used and the quiet-flag has been passed to msf-daemon.
