Using Metasploit I am trying to attack an unpatched Windows XP SP3 Virtual machine with the ms08-067 exploit but it just gets stuck at Attempting to trigger the vulnerability. I assume this means the exploit failed for some reason but I would like to make it work. Do I need to enable any GPO or some other change on the target for the exploit to work?
I have checked the following:
The targets firewall is turned off and has no defences.
I have checked in add remove programs with the show updates box ticked and there is no patches.
The target IP address is correct.
Port 445 is open.
