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
VMware Workspace ONE Access Hekate Remote Code Execution Exploit An authentication bypass in OAuth2TokenResourceController access control service, a JDBC injection that allows remote code execution in DBConnectionCheckController dbCheck and a local privilege escalation via publishCaCert.hzn and gatherConfig.hzn; allows unauthenticated remote attackers to execute system commands as root. Linux Exploits / OS Command Injection / Known Vulnerabilities Impact
Microsoft Windows CSRSS Integer Overflow Vulnerability DoS There is an integer overflow in the BaseSrvActivationContextCacheDuplicateUnicodeString function in the sxssrv.dll module of the CSRSS process.
Windows Denial of Service / Local Impact
Zoho ManageEngine Password Manager Pro XML-RPC Java Deserialization Vulnerability Remote Code Execution Exploit A java deserialization vulnerability in Zoho ManageEngine Pro before 12101 and PAM360 before 5510 allows unauthenticated attackers to send crafted XML-RPC requests with malicious serialized data to execute system commands as SYSTEM. Windows Exploits / Remote Code Execution Impact
Linux Kernel Legacy Parse Param IU HO Local Privilege Escalation Exploit A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the legacy_parse_param function in the Filesystem Context functionality of the Linux kernel verified the supplied parameters length. An unprivileged (in case of unprivileged user namespaces enabled, otherwise needs namespaced CAP_SYS_ADMIN privilege) local user able to open a filesystem that does not support the Filesystem Context API (and thus fallbacks to legacy handling) could use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system

Linux Exploits / Local Impact
Microsoft Windows SMBv3 FileNormalizedNameInformation DoS Microsoft Windows SMBv3 suffers from a null pointer dereference in versions of Windows prior to the April, 2022 patch set. By sending a malformed FileNormalizedNameInformation SMBv3 request over a named pipe, an attacker can cause a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) crash of the Windows kernel. For most systems, this attack requires authentication, except in the special case of Windows Domain Controllers, where unauthenticated users can always open named pipes as long as they can establish an SMB session. Typically, after the BSOD, the victim SMBv3 server will reboot. Windows Denial of Service / Remote Impact
