Description

This is a general-purpose module for exploiting conditions where a HTTP request triggers a DLL load from an specified SMB share. This module serves payloads as DLLs over an SMB service and allows an arbitrary HTTP URL to be called that would trigger the load of the DLL.

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