 *
 * Exploit for Postfix 2.4 before 2.4.9, 2.5 before 2.5.5, and 2.6 
 * before 2.6-20080902, when used with the Linux 2.6 kernel.

 * and Marc Morata Fité <marc.morata.fite[at]gmail[dot]com>

 *
 * This Proof of concept creates a pipe and adds it in the postfix's epoll 
 * file descriptor.
 * When the pipe is added, an endless loop will launch lots of events to the 
 * local and master postfix processes. 
 * This will slowdown de system a lot.
 *
 * An example of use:
 * 1- Put the content "| ~/CVE-2008-3889-exploit >> /tmp/postfix.log &" (with 
 * the double quotes) 
 * in the file ~/.forward
 *
 * 2- Put the CVE-2008-4042-exploit in your home
 * gcc CVE-2008-3889-exploit.c -o CVE-2008-3889-exploit
 *
 * 3- Send and email to the user
 *
 * You can see the output at /tmp/postfix.log
