Description

This module exploits a remote buffer overflow in the ZENworks Configuration Management 10 SP2. The vulnerability exists in the Preboot service and can be triggered by sending a specially crafted packet with the opcode 0x21 (PROXY_CMD_FTP_FILE) to port 998/TCP. The module has been successfully tested on Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 10 SP2 and Windows Server 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/novell/zenworks_preboot_op21_bof
msf exploit(zenworks_preboot_op21_bof) > show targets
    ...targets...
msf exploit(zenworks_preboot_op21_bof) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(zenworks_preboot_op21_bof) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(zenworks_preboot_op21_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.
