ISS PAM.dll ICQ Parser Buffer Overflow



This module exploits a stack buffer overflow in the ISS products that use the iss-pam1.dll ICQ parser (Blackice/RealSecure). Successful exploitation will result in arbitrary code execution as LocalSystem. This exploit only requires 1 UDP packet, which can be both spoofed and sent to a broadcast address. The ISS exception handler will recover the process after each overflow, giving us the ability to bruteforce the service and exploit it multiple times.

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