Description

This module exploits a buffer overflow in Computer Associates BrightStor ARCserve r11.5 (build 3884). By sending a specially crafted RPC request to opcode 0x342, an attacker could overflow the buffer and execute arbitrary code. In order to successfully exploit this vulnerability, you will need set the hostname argument (HNAME).

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/windows/brightstor/ca_arcserve_342
msf exploit(ca_arcserve_342) > show targets
    ...targets...
msf exploit(ca_arcserve_342) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(ca_arcserve_342) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(ca_arcserve_342) > 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.
