This module exploits a stack buffer overflow in Amlib's Amlibweb Library Management System (NetOpacs). The webquery.dll API is available through IIS requests. By specifying an overly long string to the 'app' parameter, SeH can be reliably overwritten allowing for arbitrary remote code execution. In addition, it is possible to overwrite EIP by specifying an arbitrary parameter name with an '=' terminator.
To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':
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.
