Mercur SP4 IMAPD
From: mu-b <mu-b () digit-labs org>

The attached exploits several signedness bugs in the NTLM implementation
of Mercur IMAPD (www.atrium-software.com) to give the attacker
complete control over a memcpy to a stack variable... (non-authenticated)
In this case, memcpy(buf, src+a, b) with 'a', and 'b' being user controlled
and buf ~7208 bytes.

note due to the most important signedness issue, we can only control 'a' within
the range -65535 < a < 65536...

The result of the PoC is an simple crash trying to copy 0xffffffff bytes...

(d94.1dc): Access violation - code c0000005 (first chance)
First chance exceptions are reported before any exception handling.
This exception may be expected and handled.
