This module exploits a vulnerability found in Apple QuickTime. When handling a TeXML file, it is possible to trigger a stack-based buffer overflow, and then gain arbitrary code execution under the context of the user. This is due to the QuickTime3GPP.gtx component not handling certain Style subfields properly, storing user-supplied data on the stack, which results the overflow.
To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':
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.
