Description

This module exploits a flaw in the 'webexservice' Windows service, which runs as SYSTEM, can be used to run arbitrary commands locally, and can be started by limited users in default installations.

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