Chasys Draw IES Buffer Overflow



This module exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability found in Chasys Draw IES (version 4.10.01). The vulnerability exists in the module flt_BMP.dll, while parsing BMP files, where the ReadFile function is used to store user provided data on the stack in an insecure way. It results in arbitrary code execution under the context of the user viewing a specially crafted BMP file. This module has been tested successfully with Chasys Draw IES 4.10.01 on Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7 SP1.

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