HP Power Manager 'formExportDataLogs' Buffer Overflow

Description

This module exploits a buffer overflow in HP Power Manager's 'formExportDataLogs'. By creating a malformed request specifically for the fileName parameter, a stack-based buffer overflow occurs due to a long error message (which contains the fileName), which may result in arbitrary remote code execution under the context of 'SYSTEM'.

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