P@c_M@n Posted December 11, 2010 Share Posted December 11, 2010 (edited) Hey guys, i was recently messing around with metasploit and i noticed something funny when i get a meterpreter shell. I am using a Backtrack 4 R2 Virtual Machine in Virtual Box and I am attacking my host OS which is Windows 7. I have also tried attacking Windows Vista with the same errors. So, first i used the "migrate" command to migrate to explorer.exe. So far so good. Okay, well then i tried the "getsystem" command to see if i could somehow elevate my privileges. But i got this error message: [-] priv_elevate_getsystem: Operation failed: Access is denied. And if i try to "run hashdump" i get this message: [*] Obtaining the boot key... [*] Calculating the hboot key using SYSKEY 1be5f252dcedd5d487c5644a3b497236... [-] Meterpreter Exception: Rex::Post::Meterpreter::RequestError stdapi_registry_create_key: Operation failed: Access is denied. [-] This script requires the use of a SYSTEM user context (hint: migrate into service process) Is something wrong with metasploit or did I miss something?
