SasCam Webcam Server v.2.6.5 Get() Method Buffer Overflow



The SasCam Webcam Server ActiveX control is vulnerable to a buffer overflow. By passing an overly long argument via the Get method, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with the privileges of the user. This control is not marked safe for scripting, please choose your attack vector carefully.

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