I have been lurking this sub-board for a while now. I have been eager for a long time to see a Xbox One exploit. I have concluded some ideas on how this may be possible but I could be wrong. 1. Buffer Overflow to escape a VM Sandbox It may not sound probable but it is. Take a look at this thread first. https://www.se7ensins.com/forums/threads/xbox-weak-link.1672922/ It sends a payload within a document file. I know that through Metasploit or various tools you can manipulate a weakness in .docx and word documents to include your payload within the document and make it FUD. First you would have to get the document with the payload into the xbox through whatever vulnerability. Before hand you would have to code the exploit to escape the VM Sandbox. Doing so may be tough and I have supplied the links but it may work. Correct me if I am wrong. There are many exploits to escape VM Sandboxes within Internet Explorer and other Microsoft applications. Most of which would have to be compiled into a payload through Metasploit Framework.

Complete Wi-Fi Traffic Interception For this I was thinking to run a sniffer tool to ARP spoof the network and record ALL traffic on you LAN network. While doing so you can run an Xbox One update, downloading games, etc. This could grant raw code and access to it to explore and data mine. The number one way to find an exploit is to reverse engineer what you are trying to manipulate. One thought I had is this which requires 2 consoles. On the first console update it but do not update the second. While updating the first grab all network traffic and dig through to find the Xbox One update files. You could then edit the update files to include an exploit code. Afterward you login to the router and set a block on the port and host of which the update came through. Then you could set up your own local server spoofing or having the same port and host name therefore your Xbox can connect. However it might not connect if there is some sort of Peer to Host validation within the update between Microsoft servers and the Xbox One. This idea could be tinkered with and changed in order to figure out how this could be done. 3. Ripping or Editing disc ISO The final idea I had was to load an Xbox One game disc into a disc drive and read it with a computer. In order to do so you might need some sort of certain drivers, software of firmware on the disc drive in order to read write the disc. If this can be done, most likely not, then you could add a payload on a game disc within certain data chunks so when you load the game and access a certain feature of the game or load something it will load the payload also. This will be the same payload to break out of the VM Sandbox. I would really like to see an exploit and I am trying my best to come up with ideas. I am willing to collaborate with someone who is interested in working towards an exploit. When it comes to technology there will always be a backdoor and exploit to every security system no matter how secure it might be. Don't get discouraged. Hardware exploration could also help out a lot. Any feed back is appreciated. Thank you.
