SAP NetWeaver Dispatcher DiagTraceR3Info Buffer Overflow



This module exploits a stack buffer overflow in the SAP NetWeaver Dispatcher service. The overflow occurs in the DiagTraceR3Info() function and allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code by supplying a special crafted Diag packet. The Dispatcher service is only vulnerable if the Developer Traces have been configured at levels 2 or 3. The module has been successfully tested on SAP Netweaver 7.0 EHP2 SP6 over Windows XP SP3 and Windows 2003 SP2 (DEP bypass).

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