This module exploits a vulnerability found in BlazeVideo HDTV Player's filename handling routine. When supplying a string of input data embedded in a .plf file, the MediaPlayerCtrl.dll component will try to extract a filename by using PathFindFileNameA(), and then copies whatever the return value is on the stack by using an inline strcpy. As a result, if this input data is long enough, it can cause a stack-based buffer overflow, which may lead to arbitrary code execution under the context of the user.
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.
