This module exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability found in ERS Viewer 2013. The vulnerability exists in the module ermapper_u.dll, where the function rf_report_error handles user provided data in an insecure way. It results in arbitrary code execution under the context of the user viewing a specially crafted .ers file. This module has been tested successfully with ERS Viewer 2013 (versions 220.127.116.111) on Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7 SP1.
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.
