# Exploit Title: Microsoft Windows Server 2012 - 'Group Policy' Remote Code Execution # Date: 2019-10-28 # Exploit Author: Thomas Zuk # Version: Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, # Windows RT, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, and Windows RT 8.1 # Tested on: Windows 7 , Windows Server 2012 # CVE : CVE-2015-0008 # Type: Remote # Platform: Windows # Description: While there exists multiple advisories for the vulnerability and video demos of # successful exploitation there is no public exploit-code for MS15-011 (CVE-2015-0008). This exploit code # targets vulnerable systems in order to modify registry keys to disable SMB signing, achieve SYSTEM level # remote code execution (AppInit_DLL) and a user level remote code execution (Run Keys). #!/usr/bin/python3 import argparse import os import subprocess import socket import fcntl import struct # MS15-011 Exploit. # For more information and any updates/additions this exploit see the following Git Repo: # Example usage: python3 -t -d -i eth1 # Example usage with multiple DC's: python3 -t -d -d -d -i eth1 # Questions @Freakazoidile on twitter or make an issue on the GitHub repo.
