Description

This module exploits a vulnerability within the XGO.ocx ActiveX Control installed with the HP Application Lifecycle Manager Client. The vulnerability exists in the SetShapeNodeType method, which allows the user to specify memory that will be used as an object, through the node parameter. It allows to control the dereference and use of a function pointer. This module has been successfully tested with HP Application Lifecycle Manager 11.50 and requires JRE 6 in order to bypass DEP and ASLR.

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