This module exploits a vulnerability found in the Honeywell Tema ActiveX Remote Installer. This ActiveX control can be abused by using the DownloadFromURL() function to install an arbitrary MSI from a remote location without checking source authenticity or user notification. This module has been tested successfully with the Remote Installer ActiveX installed with Honeywell EBI R410.1 - TEMA 5.3.0 and Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8 on Windows XP SP3.

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