Core Certified Exploits

Expert validated exploits for safe and effective pen tests

Exploit development can be an advanced penetration testing skill that takes time to master. Additionally, when on a job, pen testers often don’t have the resources to create a new exploit. Many resort to searching for and using pre-written exploits that have not been tested and must go through the timely effort of quality assurance testing in order to ensure they are secure and effective. 

Core Impact users can save time by finding all the up-to-date exploits they need in one place. We provide a robust library of exploits designed to enable pen testers to safely and efficiently conduct successful penetration tests. Whether written by our own internal team or by a third party like ExCraft, you can trust they have been thoroughly tested and validated by our experts.

Apache APISIX batch-requests Remote Code Execution Exploit (CVE-2022-24112) This module exploits a vulnerability in Apache APISIX batch requests plugin to perform a remote code execution. April 7, 2022 Linux Exploits / Remote Code Execution Impact
Veeam Backup and Replication ExecuteUploadManagerPerformUpload Remote Code Execution Exploit An authentication bypass in Veeam.Backup.ServiceLib.CForeignInvokerNegotiateAuthenticator.Authenticate and a file upload present in ExecuteUploadManagerPerformUpload allows an unauthenticated attacker to execute system commands with the privileges of the "IIS Worker Process" process (NT AUTHORITY\\NETWORK SERVICE) March 23, 2022 Windows Exploits / Remote Code Execution Impact
Microsoft Windows HTTP Stack DoS This bug could allow an attacker to gain code execution on an affected system by sending specially crafted packets to a system utilizing the HTTP Protocol Stack (http.sys) to process packets. No user interaction, no privileges required, and an elevated service add up to a wormable bug. And while this is definitely more server-centric, remember that Windows clients can also run http.sys, so all affected versions are affected by this bug. Test and deploy this patch quickly.
March 18, 2022 Windows Denial of Service / Remote Impact
Apache James Log4shell Remote Code Execution Vulnerability Exploit Description: JNDI features used in configuration, log messages, and parameters present in Apache Log4j2 do not protect against attacker controlled LDAP and other JNDI related endpoints. This library, used by Apache James, allows unauthenticated attackers to execute system commands. March 17, 2022 Linux, Windows Exploits / Remote Impact
Microsoft Windows Administrator UAC Elevation Bypass Update v2 This update improves the module to bypass UAC by adding support for Windows 11. March 15, 2022 Windows Exploits / Local Impact
Linux Kernel Dirty Pipe Local Privilege Escalation Exploit Improper initialization of the flags member of the pipe buffer structure in copy_page_to_iter_pipe and push_pipe functions in the Linux kernel, could allow an unprivileged local user to write to pages in the page cache backed by read-only files and escalate privileges on the system. March 14, 2022 Linux Exploits / Local Impact
Raspberry Pi Default Credentials Exploit Update Raspberry Pi OS through 5.10 has the raspberry default password for the pi account. If not changed, attackers can gain administrator privileges.

This update improves Python 3 support.
