#Remote Samba is_known_pipename() ( 3.5.0 to 4.4.14, 4.5.10, and 4.6.4.) Exploit By N_A , N_A[at]tutanota.com

#The orginal bug was discovered by steelo <knownsteelo[at]gmail.com>

#Tested on Samba 4.5.8-Debian

#Requirments for this exploit to run:

#perl -MCPAN -e 'install Filesys::SmbClientParser'
#git clone https://github.com/CoreSecurity/impacket and then install the package

#How to use this exploit:

#This exploit loads a hacked library file into a vulnerable samba server and provides a reverse shell. ( you will need to swap the shellcode )
#A writable samba share is required or valid credentials to a samba share that allows write access to the share.
#You need to know the server side location path of the writable share. For example if the share with write access is called 'blah' then you will
#need to know the full server side path i.e '/home/billybobthornton/blah'
#That is all. This exploit creates a hacked library file and loads it into the remote writable samba share and then uses the DCE/RPC protocol to
#create a ncacn_np request to a named pipe ( the hacked library file ) and executes it.

#The exploit uses the impacket library files by CoreSecurity to send the DCE/RPC packet. I have tried playing with Perl's DCE::Perl::RPC and did
#not have much luck with this package. Its over 10 years old and i could not find any relevant documentation to aid me in creating a valid request
#that would trigger a named pipe request.

#If anyone knows an easier way to do this in Perl please contact me , even if its regarding wireshark captures of the DCE/RPC protocol.
#Email me on N_A[at]tutanota.com, thank you :)
