- Metasploit Modules Related To CVE-2017-1000083

Evince CBT File Command Injection
This module exploits a command injection vulnerability in Evince before version 3.24.1 when opening comic book `.cbt` files. Some file manager software, such as Nautilus and Atril, may allow automatic exploitation without user interaction due to thumbnailer preview functionality. Note that limited space is available for the payload (<256 bytes). Reverse Bash and Reverse Netcat payloads should be sufficiently small. This module has been tested successfully on evince versions: 3.4.0-3.1 + nautilus 3.4.2-1+build1 on Kali 1.0.6; 3.18.2-1ubuntu4.3 + atril 1.12.2-1ubuntu0.3 on Ubuntu 16.04.
