Description

This module will create a new session with SYSTEM privileges via the KiTrap0D exploit by Tavis Ormandy. If the session in use is already elevated then the exploit will not run. The module relies on kitrap0d.x86.dll, and is not supported on x64 editions of Windows.

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/local/ms10_015_kitrap0d
msf exploit(ms10_015_kitrap0d) > show targets
    ...targets...
msf exploit(ms10_015_kitrap0d) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(ms10_015_kitrap0d) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(ms10_015_kitrap0d) > 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.
