Viscom Image Viewer CP Pro 8.0/Gold 6.0 ActiveX Control



This module exploits a stack based buffer overflow in the Active control file ImageViewer2.OCX by passing an overly long argument to an insecure TifMergeMultiFiles() method. Exploitation results in code execution with the privileges of the user who browsed to the exploit page. The victim will first be required to trust the publisher Viscom Software. This module has been designed to bypass DEP and ASLR under XP IE8, Vista and Win7 with Java support.

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