Back this fall or summer the same topic was discussed and I thought myself
and others did a job explaining the difference between a feature and a
bug. Kazaa and Morpheus use port 1214 to share files, it's how they
work... I.E. being able to browse port 1214 is a FEATURE NOT A BUG.
Think about it. That search they have/had on kazaa.com, when you ran a
search it would give you HTTP links to hosts on port 1214, so its not like
it was some big secret, it's meant to be this way.
And in regards to security, to my knowledge no audit or major testing has
been done to my knowledge by anyone in the security community on Kazaa
and/or Morpheus, but I did try several approaches back in the fall and
came up empty. I don't remember exactly what I tried but here is the gist
Long HTTP/1.0 and HTTP/1.1 requests.
Long HTTP/1.0 URLS
Long Host: header
Multiple long Host: headers
".." and "..." exploits
cat /dev/urandom | nc wintest 1214 (x10)
Flooding HTTP requests
And none of them worked. Like I said though it was months ago and kazaa
has had several versions since then and added new features so nothing is
certain as usual.
PS. Pats won the superbowl, Boston was rockin' last night :)
