Distinct TFTP 3.10 Writable Directory Traversal Execution



This module exploits a directory traversal vulnerability in the TFTP Server component of Distinct Intranet Servers version 3.10 which allows a remote attacker to write arbitrary files to the server file system, resulting in code execution under the context of 'SYSTEM'. This module has been tested successfully on TFTP Server version 3.10 on Windows XP SP3 (EN).

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