Exploiting a 64-bit browser with Flash CVE-2015-5119 (Part 2)

This post is a continuation of Exploiting a 64-bit browser with Flash CVE-2015-5119 , where we explained how to achieve arbitrary memory read/write on a 64-bit IE renderer. As a reminder, we are targeting Windows 8.1 / IE11 (64 bits) with Flash 15.0.0.…

Exploiting a 64-bit browser with Flash CVE-2015-5119

Some weeks ago, on More Flash Exploits in the Framework, we introduced the flash_exploiter library, which is used by Metasploit to quickly add new Flash exploit modules. If you read that blog entry, then you already know that flash_exploiter only supports 32-bit browsers…

Weekly Metasploit Wrapup: Meterpretersauce

When You Wish Upon A Shell Back in February we ran a survey to figure out where you, the savvy penetration tester, would like to see Meterpreter go. As a result, we now have the Meterpreter Wishlist, and have been working steadily off of that…

More Flash Exploits in the Framework

As todb pointed out in the last weekly metasploit update wrapup we recently added two new exploits for Flash: CVE-2015-3090 and CVE-2015-3105, based on the samples found in the wild. As you're probably aware, the last years, and especially the end of 2014 and 2015,…

Weekly Metasploit Wrapup: Two More Flash Exploits

Flash as a Vulnerability Vector While Adobe has made great progress in releasing both regular and emergency updates to Flash, it's becoming clear that Flash itself is becoming an albatross around the neck of every browser. This week, Adobe released APSB15-14, a fix for CVE-2015-3133.…

Weekly Metasploit Wrapup: Recog

Recog Scanning with MetasploitThis week, our own Jon Hart started in on souping up a couple auxiliary modules with Recog, Rapid7's free, open source platform recognition framework. Metasploit has lots of these version scanners -- 27, to be precise -- in the auxiliary module tree,…

Patch Tuesday - September 2014

It's a light round of Microsoft Patching this month.  Only four advisories, of which only one is critical.  The sole critical issue this month is the expected Internet Explorer roll up affecting all supported (and likely some unsupported) versions.  This IE roll…

Weekly Metasploit Update: More Meterpreters!

Meterpreter for All The PlatformsThis week is pretty exciting for us, since it's not every day we give out commit rights to the Rapid7 Metasploit repo. I'm very happy to report that Tim Wright has agreed to step up and help out with moving Meterpreter…

Weekly Metasploit Update: Disclosing Usernames, More Flash Bugs, and Wireshark Targets

Back from the UK!As I mentioned last blog post, I was off last week in London, where I finally got the chance to meet an overflow of far-flung Metasploit and security luminaries, including the folks from 44Con and MWR Labs. My bucket list just…

IE 0-day, we got you covered

News broke this weekend of yet another IE 0-day under ("limited, targeted") exploitation in the wild.  Microsoft responded with an advisory, but no patches yet.  Given that the risk from the known exploit is mitigated by the usual defence in depth tactics I…

Scary-Sounding Flash ExploitsThis week's update brings us two new exploits from Juan Vazquez, Boris dukeBarman Ryutin, Jean-Jamil Khalife, and a criminal conspiracy of superhackers. Yep, seriously.That last bit is why these exploits deserve a special mention. These modules implement the attacks wrought by "Operation…

Weekly Metasploit Update: New Flash Exploit, HTTP Client Trickery, and More!

After the last couple bumper crops of exploits, having merely six new modules this week is kind of a relief, at least from an editing standpoint. Of course, one of them is for a fresh Adobe Flash exploit, so let's jump into that.Flash Malware…

Weekly Metasploit Update: Meterpreter, GPP, and More!

We've been cooking along here in Stately Metasploit Manor, mostly heads-down prepping for BlackHat/Defcon season. (Yes, it's that time of year already). In the meantime, we've a grab bag of mostly post modules, a drive-by update to Meterpreter, and Juan's and sinn3r's most excellent…
