This module exploits a command execution vulnerability within the DX Studio Player from Worldweaver for versions 3.0.29 and earlier. The player is a browser plugin for IE (ActiveX) and Firefox (dll). When an unsuspecting user visits a web page referring to a specially crafted .dxstudio document, an attacker can execute arbitrary commands. Testing was conducted using plugin version 184.108.40.206 for Firefox 220.127.116.11 and IE 6 on Windows XP SP3. In IE, the user will be prompted if they wish to allow the plug-in to access local files. This prompt appears to occur only once per server host. NOTE: This exploit uses additionally dangerous script features to write to local files!
To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':
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.
