Oooo my...
Got around 12 of win32 executable crashes on my Win2K server with all
patches...
This is much better tool that MS Baseline Security analyzer :-(

Subject: [Full-disclosure] Test your windows OS


Hi all,

Wanna do a quick test to see if the programmers that wrote your windows
operating system have any clue as to what there doing ? Run these commands
from cmd.exe in the system32 directory:

for %i in (*.exe) do start %i %n%n%n%n%n%n%n%n%n%n%n%n%n%n%n%n%n%n%n%n
for %i in (*.exe) do start %i
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.... (type as much "A"-s as
cmd.exe allows on one line.)

Each command will execute every program in your system32 directory, most
of them will either ignore the parameter or report an error because the
parameter doesn't make sence... But on my win2k system I found 6 programs
vulnerable to these very simple formatsting and BoF tests.... grpconv even
gives EIP 0x00410041, can it be any easier?

These are not vulnerabilities in itself: you cannot gain access or elevate
priviledges but I just wanted to let you know that these programmers did a
sloppy job.

Cheers,
SkyLined
