Description

Ethernet Device Drivers Frame Padding Info Leakage Exploit (Etherleak). CVE-2003-0001. Remote exploits for multiple platform

                                        
                                            #!/usr/bin/perl -w
# etherleak, code that has been 5 years coming.
#
# On 04/27/2002, I disclosed on the Linux Kernel Mailing list,
# a vulnerability that would be come known as the 'etherleak' bug.  In
# various situations an ethernet frame must be padded to reach a specific
# size or fall on a certain boundary.  This task is left up to the driver
# for the ethernet device.  The RFCs state that this padding must consist
# of NULLs.  The bug is that at the time and still to this day, many device
# drivers do not pad will NULLs, but rather pad with unsanitized portions
# of kernel memory, oftentimes exposing sensitive information to remote
# systems or those savvy enough to coerce their targets to do so.
#
# Proof of this can be found by googling for 'warchild and etherleak', or
# by visiting:
#
#  http://lkml.org/lkml/2002/4/27/101
#
# This was ultimately fixed in the Linux kernel, but over time this
# vulnerability reared its head numerous times, but at the core the
# vulnerability was the same as the one I originally published.  The most
# public of these was CVE-2003-0001, which was assigned to address an
# official @stake advisory.
#
# This code can be found its most current form at:
