 [ Advisory for Spynet Chat                        ]
 [ Spynet Chat is made by Spytech                  ]
 [ Site: http://www.spytech-web.com                ]
 [ by nemesystm of the DHC                         ]

Spynet Chat is a chat server. It suffers from a
denial of service.

/-|=[who is vulnerable]=|-\
Spynet Chat 6.5
has been tested and was vulnerable. Prior versions
are assumed to be vulnerable as well.

/-|=[testing it]=|-\
By opening up roughly 100 sockets in Perl and then
using the normal Spynet Client to connect the
server crashes with:
S65server has caused an error in <unknown>.
S65server will now close.

if this is on windows 95/98/ME, this is a known limitation in
windows that cannot accomodate more than 100 opened sockets at
the same time (thus gives random errors in application programs)


I have made a perl script that exploits this. It is
in the advisory that is available on the DHC site.

None known at the moment.
