MaxDB WebDBM GET Buffer Overflow



This module exploits a stack buffer overflow in the MaxDB WebDBM service. This service is included with many recent versions of the MaxDB and SAPDB products. This particular module is capable of exploiting Windows systems through the use of an SEH frame overwrite. The offset to the SEH frame may change depending on where MaxDB has been installed, this module assumes a web root path with the same length as: C:\Program Files\sdb\programs\web\Documents

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