oi, and as a minor addendum, I forgot to note the port number.
it seems that the OSX ICQ clients tend to bind to ports 49152 and
49159 so youll probably want to use those for default attempts,
otherwise just nmap -p49100-49200 or something to find it.

I looked a bit for this problem on the web, and cant find it so
I am posting it here. Yeah, so its a lame DoS for several versions of
OSX's ICQ clients. Version information is in the comment space of the
proof of concept exploit code I have included below. This was a quick
hack based on some code I authored that exploited a similar problem with
some earlier versions of Licq. I was learning basic socket coding at the
time I wrote the Licq thingy, but nonetheless here is the code that works
on ICQ MacOSX Ver 2.6x Beta Build 7 and others.
