Timbuktu Pro 2.0b650 DoS

I found a Timbukto Pro (Remote Control NT Tool) vulnerability.

Concerned product : Timbuktu Pro 2.0b650 on Windows NT 4.0 until sp5

"Exploit" is :

- Connect and disconnect on port TCP/407 to make port TCP/1417 listening
- Connect on port TCP/1417 with a simple telnet.
- Disconnect from TCP/1417 (no data exchange).

Authentication protocol waits indefinitely.

This brings Timbukto Remote Control Denial-of-Service on control. Physical
contact is then needed to restart it.

Solution to get back operational:
        - Kill timbuktu process (using pslist/pskill for example)
        - Stop Timbuktu services
        - Start them again.

        Not yet

Netopia is now aware of this.
