Description

This module exploits a vulnerability found in McAfee Virtual Technician's MVTControl. This ActiveX control can be abused by using the GetObject() function to load additional unsafe classes such as WScript.Shell, therefore allowing remote code execution under the context of the user.

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