Windows 7 Remote Crash

'No BSOD, you gotta pull the plug.' There went the SDL farm.


Buy It

Try It

The bug is so noob it should have been spotted 2 years ago by the SDL if the SDL would have ever existed:

netbios_header = struct.pack(">i", len(''.join(SMB_packet))+SMB_packet
(The netbios header provide the length of the incoming smb{1,2} packet)

If netbios_header is 4 bytes smaller or more than SMB_packet, it just blow !

'Most secure Os ever';
What ever your firewall is set to, you can get remotly smashed via IE or even via some broadcasting nbns tricks (no user interaction)
How funny.
