Please, I'm not a "vendor representative" it isn't "my" code and "I" am not the person to fix it. I'm just trying to help out here. I guess the irony of the remark was lost to some. (As someone else remarked, excercises left to the reader are left to the read for a single reason most of the time: the author couldn't figure it out for himself) As for the KCMS code and fixing it myself, well, I'd love to have the power to do so, but as it stands, the Sun source code is spread over several bits all under different control. Some even under external control. Not all source code is available on our intranet (hate that word). >On unpatched Solaris 2.6, sparc: > >% uname -a >SunOS oy 5.6 Generic sun4m sparc SUNW,SPARCstation-20 >% /usr/openwin/bin/kcms_configure -P `perl -e 'print "a" x 9000'` foofoo >% >That's it, no seg fault. Am i doing something wrong? No, SPARC stack frames are constructed differently. On Solaris/Intel, all you need is a return from the function that declared the overflown buffer. On SPARC, you need to return from the invoking function as well. The kcms_* program must test & exit before the overflow ends up in a register. It may still be possible to craft an overflow for kcms_configure on SPARC that is exploitable; it's likely not to be as straightforward as the one on Intel. Casper
