(Metasploitable Project: Lesson 3)

{ Exploiting Samba, CVE-2007-2447: Remote Command Injection }


Section 0. Background Information
  1. Metasploitable 
  2. Pre-Requisite Lab
  3. Exploit CVE 2007-2447
    • The MS-RPC functionality in smbd in Samba 3.0.0 through 3.0.25rc3 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands via shell metacharacters involving the (1) SamrChangePassword function, when the "username map script" smb.conf option is enabled, and allows remote authenticated users to execute commands via shell metacharacters involving other MS-RPC functions in the (2) remote printer and (3) file share management.
    • The root cause is passing unfiltered user input provided via MS-RPC calls to /bin/sh when invoking externals scripts defined in smb.conf.
