2) Bug
======


The solid.exe service listening on port 1315 can be crashed by an
external attacker through a malformed type of packet.
The bugged function is located at address 0063dc60 which is called
recursively if the packet contains a particular value between the range
of values 15001 and 15100 (switch 9).
The effects of the problem can be:
- stack exaustion by using over 14000 of these values so that all the
  memory of the stack gets consumed by these recursive callings
- NULL pointer due to the usage of only one of these values where an
  unused pointer (set to zero) is used in a comparison operation
- invalid memory access by using also another type of value after those
