O'Reilly WebSite Professional is a web server package distributed by O'Reilly & Associates. Certain versions of this web server (the entire 2.X version line) ship with a utility containing a remotely exploitable buffer overflow. The utility in question is a search engine utility titled 'webfind.exe'. This program takes unchecked user input from a provided search page which can result in a remote user launching arbitrary commands on the server itself. The variable in question which is overwritten is QUERY_STRING derived from user 'keywords' for their search.

/*   Buffer overrun in WebSite Pro's webfind.exe
*/
/*
*/
/*
*/
/*   This is "proof of concept" code which will launch a window of calc.exe
on */
/*   the server's machine. This code will _not_ work as is. When the search
*/
/*   request is made two packets are sent by the client computer. The first
*/
/*   should be sniffed and copied and pasted straight into buffer 1. Then
for  */
/*   second packet sniff again, and copy the end of the data packet from
*/
/*   "&indexname" onwards (This will vary from server to server)
*/
