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


Crysis is a recent FPS game developed by Crytek (http://www.crytek.com)
and released at November 2007.
This game is well known for being a "computer killer" due to its high
hardware requirements but also for having various problems with
cheaters.

2) Bug

Crysis has a small internal HTTP/XML-RPC server which must be activated
with the http_startserver command (manually or through server.cfg) and
allows to receive rcon commands.

This service works on port 80 if no port is specified but usually the
admins choose a custom port or just the same of the game (64087, the
service is easily distinguishable due to the "Bad Request" title
visible with a web browser).

If an attacker uses an HTTP request with a total length major than 4096
bytes the server will crash due to a NULL pointer.
