UltraISO CUE File Parsing Buffer Overflow



This module exploits a stack-based buffer overflow in EZB Systems, Inc's UltraISO. When processing .CUE files, data is read from file into a fixed-size stack buffer. Since no bounds checking is done, a buffer overflow can occur. Attackers can execute arbitrary code by convincing their victim to open an CUE file. NOTE: A file with the same base name, but the extension of "bin" must also exist. Opening either file will trigger the vulnerability, but the files must both exist.

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