first off, sorry for being offtopic and unpolite. I know this is not the right

knowledge so maybe someone will help...

I'm trying to learn buffer overflows and have already conqured some basic 
knowledge. But when it comes to the "real thing" BOFs could be real PITA. 
Recently I came across buffer overflow in  Multicast Information (mrinfo.exe) 
in Windows XP SP2. I didn't find this issue myself of course. This is an old 
and well known bug.

To cut a long and boring story short. Here's the link with (wanna be) perl 


If anyone is willing to help - more informations and questions are included in 
perl script.

Thank you very much.


Nothing beats practice!

I suggest you find some good wargames servers to tinker with, that way
the difficulty tends to increase with your ability. Its a nice way to
practice imho.
