NetDecision 4.5.1 HTTP Server Buffer Overflow



This module exploits a vulnerability found in NetDecision's HTTP service (located in C:\Program Files\NetDecision\Bin\HttpSvr.exe). By supplying a long string of data to the URL, an overflow may occur if the data gets handled by HTTP Server's active window. In other words, in order to gain remote code execution, the victim is probably looking at HttpSvr's window.

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