Recently an exploit for MSVidCtl component of Microsoft DirectShow was found that caused a memory corruption on Internet Explorer 6 and 7 giving shell on the target box under the IE process. Trancer contributed a exploit module to Metasploit to exploit this vulnerability by creating a crafted GIF image.

Migrate sadly does not work since the process is left in such an unstable state that trying to migrate the Meterpreter session tends to kill the session.
We start by running msfconsole after updating Metasploit to the latest version of Metsaploit dev version:
