Aim to Exploit MS08-067 Vulnerability of Window XP and Window Server 2003

On 24 October 2008, Microsoft released an out-of-cycle patch that addressed a stack buffer overflow vulnerability in the Microsoft Windows Server service MS08-067, CVE-2008-4250. Per Microsoft, "This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in the Server service. 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." Public exploit code and malware began circulating as soon as the patch was released. Microsoft and Symantec provided analysis on malware known as Gimmiv.A. The malware harvests and exfiltrates system information and is able to scan and exploit the MS08-067 vulnerability. The following provides analysis findings for Gimmiv.A.

 Those familiar with the ms06-040 attack in Metasploit will notice that, even though there are many similarities in the attack, there are some changes in the implementation in this module. In particular, in the the ‘Targets’ section, we not only see the OS specific memory.address of a desired return-to-lib location, we now also have ‘DisableNX’ for Windows XP SP2 and SP3.
What makes this exploit special is that it bypass DEP and then send the bug string(payload) which is a path function .This vulnerability is result of parsing flaw which allows attacker to exploit it and execute its malicious code by overflowing stack.So in simple works it another example of stack overflow.

Hacking Windows 10 UWP App: DLL Injection & common Vulnerabilities

I recently started working on  widows 10 Apps( Apps not Applications) security. Before diving deep in hacking terms lets try to understand what's new in Windows 10 UWP( Universal Platform) as compared to old Apps. Lets begin with how apps actually work on windows 10(desktop/tablet). Now windows 10 comes with a container only for running apps inside the isolated environment. By default, /APPCONTAINER(Linker Flag) is off. This option modifies an executable to indicate whether the app must be run in the appcontainer process-isolation environment. Specify /APPCONTAINER for an app that must run in the appcontainer environment—for example, a Windows Store app. (The option is set automatically in Visual Studio when you create a Windows Store app from a template.) For a desktop app, specify /APPCONTAINER:NO or just omit the option. The /APPCONTAINER option was introduced in Windows 8. Now there is no registry entry concept for these app in the System HIVE rather they install they own hiv

SSI Injection Attack

SSIs are directives present on Web applications used to feed an HTML page with dynamic contents. They are similar to CGIs, except that SSIs are used to execute some actions before the current page is loaded or while the page is being visualized. In order to do so, the web server analyzes SSI before supplying the page to the user. The Server-Side Includes attack allows the exploitation of a web application by injecting scripts in HTML pages or executing arbitrary codes remotely. It can be exploited through manipulation of SSI in use in the application or force its use through user input fields. It is possible to check if the application is properly validating input fields data by inserting characters that are used in SSI directives, like:  Code: < ! # = / . " - > and [a-zA-Z0-9] Another way to discover if the application is vulnerable is to verify the presence of pages with extension .stm, .shtm and .shtml. However, the lack of these type of pages does not mean that th
