ALLMediaServer 0.8 Buffer Overflow



This module exploits a stack buffer overflow in ALLMediaServer 0.8. The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the handling of HTTP request. While the exploit supports DEP bypass via ROP, on Windows 7 the stack pivoting isn't reliable across virtual (VMWare, VirtualBox) and physical environments. Because of this the module isn't using DEP bypass on the Windows 7 SP1 target, where by default DEP is OptIn and AllMediaServer won't run with DEP.

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