Core Certified Exploits

Library of 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.

The universe of vulnerabilities is huge and not all of them represent the same risk for the customers. Vulnerabilities do not all have the same level of criticality. Some may be easily exploitable by a low-level user, while others may not be exploitable at all. To increase the efficiency of the attacks and the quality of the exploits provided, the Core Impact team has developed selection criteria to prioritize its analysis and implementation. We determine which exploits warrant creation based on the following questions:

  • What are the most critical attacks from the attacker’s perspective?
  • What new vulnerabilities are more likely to be exploited in real attacks?
  • What exploits are the most valuable for Core Impact?

Once an exploit is approved, its priority order considers the following variables: 

  • Vulnerability Properties: CVE, disclosure date, access mechanism and privileges needed. 
  • Target Environment Setup: OS, application prevalence, version and special configurations needed. 
  • Value Provided to Core Impact: Customer request, usage in multiple attacks, allows the installation of an agent, etc. 
  • Technical Cost vs. Benefit: An analysis weighing the resources needed to build an exploit with the internal and external knowledge gained in its creation. 

Each one of these variables has a different weight and provides a ranking of the potential exploits to be developed. Following those criteria, the top of the list would contain, for example, a vulnerability on Windows (most popular OS) that can be exploited remotely, without authentication and that provides super user privileges. 

Correspondingly, a vulnerability on an application that is rarely installed, needs special configurations, and requires User Interaction, would be at the bottom.

Title Description Date Added CVE Link Exploit Platform Exploit Type Product Name
Siemens Desigo XWorks Plus 4.10.090 Remote Arbitrary File Overwrite This module will receive HTTP requests from vulnerable clients and overwrite selected files on them. Exploits / Client Side SCADA
Sielco PolyEco Digital FM Transmitter 2.0.6 Unauthenticated Information Disclosure Sielco PolyEco is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability due to improper access control enforcement. An unauthenticated remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request to gain access to sensitive information. Exploits / Client Side SCADA
Rittal Therm Software Directory Traversal Vulnerability This module exploits a directory traversal vulnerability in Rittal Therm Software Web Server Windows Exploits / Remote SCADA
Ivanti Avalanche WLAvalancheService Unauthenticated Remote Buffer Overflow Exploit This module exploits a remote stack-based buffer overflow in Wavelink Avalanche Manager by sending a malformed packet to the 1777/TCP port. Windows Exploits / Remote Impact
Microsoft Windows Win32k xxxEnableMenuItem Elevation of Privilege Exploit An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists due to the Windows kernel improperly validating input passed from user mode to the kernel. The vulnerability could allow an attacker to run code with elevated privileges. Windows Exploits / Local Impact
Progress MOVEit Transfer UserCheckClientCert SQL Injection Vulnerability Exploit An SQL Injection Vulnerability in Progress MOVEit Transfer allows unauthenticated remote attackers to execute system commands. Windows Exploits / OS Command Injection / Known Vulnerabilities Impact
Linux Kernel OverlayFS Logic Upper Attributes Local Privilege Escalation Exploit On Ubuntu kernels carrying both c914c0e27eb0 and "UBUNTU: SAUCE: overlayfs: Skip permission checking for trusted.overlayfs.* xattrs", an unprivileged user may set privileged extended attributes on the mounted files, leading them to be set on the upper files without the appropriate security checks. This module exploits this in order to achieve LPE. Linux Exploits / Local Impact
Citrix ADC and Gateway ns_aaa_gwtest_get_event_and_target_names Remote Code Execution Exploit A stack buffer overflow in ns_aaa_gwtest_get_event_and_target_names function of nsppe process allows unauthenticated attacker to execute system commands as root via specially crafted HTTP GET request. FreeBSD Exploits / Remote Impact
VMware Aria Operations for Logs InternalClusterController Java Deserialization Vulnerability Remote Code Execution Exploit A java deserialization vulnerability allows unauthenticated remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on affected installations of VMware Aria Operations for Logs in the context of the root user account. Linux Exploits / Remote Code Execution Impact
Wacom Drivers for Windows Local Privilege Escalation Exploit The specific flaw exists within the Tablet Service. By creating a symbolic link, an attacker can abuse the service to create a file. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to escalate privileges and execute arbitrary code in the context of SYSTEM. Windows Exploits / Local Impact
IBM i Distributed Data Management Remote CL Command Injection Exploit Update An remote CL Command Injection on IBM i DDM Service allows unauthenticated remote attackers to execute CL commands in the context of the QUSER user account.



This update adds support for SSL services and an extra exploit stage
IBM i Exploits / OS Command Injection / Known Vulnerabilities Impact
IBM i Distributed Data Management Remote CL Command Injection Exploit An remote CL Command Injection on IBM i DDM Service allows unauthenticated remote attackers to execute CL commands in the context of the QUSER user account. IBM i Exploits / OS Command Injection / Known Vulnerabilities Impact
Foxit PDF Reader Export XFA Data Arbitrary File Write Exploit The method exportXFAData has inadvertently exposed a dangerous loophole that can allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the victim's system. The exploitation process requires the victim's interaction, meaning a potential attacker would need to convince the target to visit a malicious web page or open a corrupted file. The victim's susceptibility to social engineering thus significantly increases the risk factor of this vulnerability. Windows Exploits / Client Side Impact

Windows Common Log File System Driver Local Privilege Escalation Exploit (CVE-2023-28252) The cause of the vulnerability is due to the lack of a strict bounds check for some fields in the Base Block for the base log file (BLF) in CLFS.sys. This issue can lead to a Privilege Escalation. Windows Exploits / Local Impact
Microsoft DHCP Server Service DoS A denial of service vulnerability exists in DHCPv6 service when an unauthenticated attacker connects to the target system and sends specially crafted requests. Windows Denial of Service / Remote Impact
