# This vulnerability allows a remote unauthenticated user to overwrite big chunks 
# of the heap used by the inetinfo.exe process. Reliably exploiting this bug is 
# non-trivial; even though the entire buffer is binary safe (even nulls) and can be 
# just about any size, the actual code that crashes varies widely with each request. 
# During the analysis process, numerous combinations of request size, concurrent 
# requests, pre-allocations, and alternate trigger routes were examined and not a 
# single duplicate of location and data offset was discovered. Hopefully the magic 
# combination of data, size, and setup will be found to allow this bug to be reliably 
# exploited.

# minor bugfix: look for 354 Send binary data
