2) Bug
======


nsrexecd is a service listening on some default ports (like 111, 7937
and 7938) plus another couple of random ones usually over port 8000.

Through a malformed RPC packet sent to one these random ports it's
possible to crash the service due to the hash calculation performed
over an arbitrary amount of data.

From librpc.dll:

  0038B3CF   8B4424 3C        MOV EAX,DWORD PTR SS:[ESP+3C]     ; my_size
  0038B3D3   8B6D 00          MOV EBP,DWORD PTR SS:[EBP]
  0038B3D6   2BF0             SUB ESI,EAX

  0038B3E7   8B43 10          MOV EAX,DWORD PTR DS:[EBX+10]
  0038B3EA   50               PUSH EAX
  0038B3EB   8D4C24 3C        LEA ECX,DWORD PTR SS:[ESP+3C]

  0038AFD3   8B51 04          MOV EDX,DWORD PTR DS:[ECX+4]      ; new size

  0038AFD9   8B5424 2C        MOV EDX,DWORD PTR SS:[ESP+2C]
  0038AFDD   51               PUSH ECX

  0038AFE2   8B50 1C          MOV EDX,DWORD PTR DS:[EAX+1C]
  0038AFE5   51               PUSH ECX
  0038AFE6   52               PUSH EDX
  0038AFE7   E8 04E3FFFF      CALL LIBRPC.cryptoiface_get_hmac  ; hash crash

Note: after the crash it's necessary to restart also the other services
so that the situation can return normal and the bug can be tested
again.

3) The Code
===========


http://aluigi.org/poc/nsrexecd_1.dat
http://www.exploit-db.com/sploits/18601.dat

  nc SERVER PORT < nsrexecd_1.dat

it's enough to scan all the ports from 8000 to 10000 to catch the
correct one automatically.
