PIRANA – Exploitation Framework for Email Content Filters


PIRANA is an exploitation framework that tests the security of a email content filter. By means of a vulnerability database, the content filter to be tested will be bombarded by various emails containing a malicious payload intended to compromise the computing platform.

PIRANA’s goal is to test whether or not any vulnerability exists on the content filtering platform.

This tool uses the excellent shellcode generator from the Metasploit framework!

You can download PIRANA here:

pirana-0.3.3.tar.gz

Or can read more here.

There is also an accompanying paper that explains what are the vulnerabilities of a SMTP content filter. It also presents what techniques were used in PIRANA to improve reliability and stealthiness.
