DoS Proof of Concept for MS03-043 - exploitation shouldn't be too hard.
Launching it one or two times against the target should make the machine
reboot. Tested against a Win2K SP4.

"The vulnerability results because the Messenger Service does not properly
validate the length of a message before passing it to the allocated buffer"
according to MS bulletin. Digging into it a bit more, we find that when a
character 0x14 in encountered in the 'body' part of the message, it is replaced
by a CR+LF. The buffer allocated for this operation is twice the size of the
string, which is the way to go, but

character 0x14 in encountered in the 'body' part of the message, it is replaced
by a CR+LF. The buffer allocated for this operation is twice the size of the
string, which is the way to go, but is then copied to a buffer which was only
allocated 11CAh bytes. Thanks to that, we can bypass the length checks and
overflow the fixed size buffer.

Credits go to LSD :)
