Description

This module executes a Metasploit payload against the Equation Group's DOUBLEPULSAR implant for SMB as popularly deployed by ETERNALBLUE. While this module primarily performs code execution against the implant, the "Neutralize implant" target allows you to disable the implant.

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