rtorrent 0.9.6 - Denial of Service (mirror from exploitdb)
# Mirror of https://www.exploit-db.com/exploits/44894/
# Exploit Title: rtorrent 0.9.6 - Denial of Service
# Date: 2018-01-10
# Exploit Author: ecx86
# Vendor Homepage: http://rtorrent.net
# Software Link: https://github.com/rakshasa/rtorrent/releases
# Version: <= 0.9.6
# Tested on: Debian GNU/Linux 9.4 (stretch)
# This crash is due to a bad bencode parse of the handshake data map.
# Specifically, by providing a massive length for a string, namely the key of a map entry,
# malloc fails, returning 0, which is passed to a memcpy call that causes the segfault.
# This can be triggered actively by sending the crash-triggering data to a seeding rtorrent
# client, or when a downloading rtorrent client connects to a malicious peer.
