xtokkaetama[v1.0b+]: (missed) buffer overflow exploit.
From: Vade 79 <v9 () fakehalo deadpig org>
Date: 3 Aug 2003 09:52:33 -0000



not a big deal, but after viewing the debian advisory for xtokkaetama; BID 
found at http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/8312.  i took a quick look at 
the source, and noticed an overlooked buffer overflow that occurs later in 
the program.  the overflow is a result of the "-nickname" command line 
argument...quick example exploit follows. (i don't have a debian box here, 
but the exploit should still work ok, tested on redhat7.1)


--------------------------- exploit: xxtama.c ---------------------------

/* (linux/x86)xtokkaetama[v1.0b+]: (games) local buffer overflow exploit.
   by: v9[v9 () fakehalo deadpig org]  (fakehalo)

   exploits an overflow missed in the patch/upgrade of:
    http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/8312

   fix:
    xtama_score.c:132: +strncpy(name,nickname,sizeof(name)-1);
    xtama_score.c:132: -sscanf( nickname , "%s",name ) ;

   (tested on non-debian, should still work elsewhere)
