Nvidia Mental Ray Satellite Service Arbitrary DLL Injection



The Nvidia Mental Ray Satellite Service listens for control commands on port 7414. When it receives the command to load a DLL (via an UNC path) it will try to connect back to the host on port 7514. If a TCP connection is successful it will then attempt to load the DLL. This module has been tested successfully on Win7 x64 with Nvidia Mental Ray Satellite Service v3.11.1.

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