Sysax Multi Server 5.64 Create Folder Buffer Overflow



This module exploits a stack buffer overflow in the create folder function in Sysax Multi Server 5.64. This issue was fixed in 5.66. In order to trigger the vulnerability valid credentials with the create folder permission must be provided. The HTTP option must be enabled on Sysax too. This module will log into the server, get a SID token, find the root folder, and then proceed to exploit the server. Successful exploits result in SYSTEM access. This exploit works on XP SP3, and Server 2003 SP1-SP2.

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