Description

This module exploits a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability in version 2.1 of IcoFX. The vulnerability exists while parsing .ICO files, where a specially crafted ICONDIR header providing an arbitrary long number of images in the file can be used to trigger the overflow when reading the ICONDIRENTRY structures.

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