Microsoft Windows image rendering DoS vuln



Microsoft Windows image rendering DoS vuln



Mmm i don`t know,  i test it and my pc crashed, it looks that get all my windows virtual memory, and any key didn´t works fine, so I have to make “button reboot”. If someone knows how to make something with the flaw I hope comments..

 

 I seen source code, for me looks that ypu have to put a lot of src, to get it works, I will continue testing that.

 

 

Ok everyone, someone sent me a copy of the site which was the link that was originally sent with the vulnerability. Looking closer, it seems that it may not be that the extremely large height and width properties of the image in a site is what is causing the crash. However, I have not had time to test it out, I will in a little bit, I need to finish a few things.

 

Here is the full page source (it's in the attachment). This is what I was talking about though. Notice this in the page source:

 





</script>



 

The site also has this:

 



 

src="http://home.comcast.net/~squaresoft0/internet.jpg" height="9999999" width= "9999999">
src="http://home.comcast.net/~squaresoft0/internet.jpg" height=" 9999999" width="9999999">
Now, I will try setting up a site with just that code, and then a site with both, and see what happens. I only briefly looked at the page source, so there may be more. Tell me what you guys find.
