# Mercury/32 <v4.01b (win32) remote exploit
# by mu-b - 28 Nov 2006
#
# - Tested on: Mercury/32 v4.01a (win32)
#              Mercury/32 v4.01b (win32)
#
# Stack-based buffer overflow caused by Mercury/32 concatenating
# continuation data into a fixed sized buffer disregarding
# the length of the original command, you do not require authentication.
#
# This is a little harder to exploit than usual since the
# stack frame in question calls end_thread before returning..
# buts it's still possible by at *least* two different ways...
# (i.e. controlling a pointer into sprintf and/or controlling
#  a pointer to be free()).
