# Exploit Title: Microsoft Windows Server 2012 - 'Group Policy' Remote Code Execution
# Date: 2019-10-28
# Exploit Author: Thomas Zuk
# Version: Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012,
# Windows RT, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, and Windows RT 8.1
# Tested on: Windows 7 , Windows Server 2012
# CVE : CVE-2015-0008
# Type: Remote
# Platform: Windows

# Description: While there exists multiple advisories for the vulnerability and video demos of
# successful exploitation there is no public exploit-code for MS15-011 (CVE-2015-0008). This exploit code
# targets vulnerable systems in order to modify registry keys to disable SMB signing, achieve SYSTEM level
# remote code execution (AppInit_DLL) and a user level remote code execution (Run Keys).

# MS15-011 Exploit.
# For more information and any updates/additions this exploit see the following Git Repo:
# Example usage: python3 -t -d -i eth1
# Example usage with multiple DC's: python3 -t -d -d -d -i eth1
# Questions @Freakazoidile on twitter or make an issue on the GitHub repo. Enjoy.
