Corel PDF Fusion Stack Buffer Overflow



This module exploits a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability in version 1.11 of Corel PDF Fusion. The vulnerability exists while handling a XPS file with long entry names. In order for the payload to be executed, an attacker must convince the target user to open a specially crafted XPS file with Corel PDF Fusion. By doing so, the attacker can execute arbitrary code as the target user.

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