Realistic 8

Arrow Image How to complete Realistic 8...fairly easily

Realistic 8

This is a guide on how to complete Realistic Challenge 8

Okay i read another article on this challenge which had some code and spoke about cURL and php etc...
That isn't the only way you can complete this challenge.

I recommend you Google > 'Buffer Overflow' for more information.

Buffer overflow:-
'Buffer overflows may cause a process to crash or produce incorrect results. They can be triggered by inputs specifically designed to execute malicious code or to make the program operate in an unintended way. As such, buffer overflows cause many software vulnerabilities and form the basis of many exploits. Sufficient bounds checking by either the programmer or the compiler can prevent buffer overflows.' Wikipedia

In a scenario like this one, to determine if it is buffer overflow vulnerable then you would put in the correct username,
a random password. Hit enter and it will say invalid password. Now you keep refreshing as fast as possible, (Hint// using firefox hitting F5 then enter works a treat)

Once you have promptly refreshed the page about 20 something times then the data is corrupted and it goes in your favour.
Now you are logged in, time to complete the rest of the challenge.

Please comment and rate this article
Feel free to PM if you need extra help

Wow. This article is going to help my a lot. Is this challenge suppose to be completed this way?

Nice, helped loads for those of us who couldn't do the remote brute force

Good article for completing the challenge, but realistically you will NEVER find a buffer overflow like this, it's not even really a buffer overflow. For an excellent article on Buffer overflows and how to exploit them check this out http://www.insecu. . .hstack.txt Good job on the article.

This is awsome man! Are buffer overflows possible on logins without a database check, or is this only for this challange?
Placeboon November 09 2006 - 05:41:35
Thank you very much. This article helped me out greatly.

I did it the easy way and set Opera to reload the page every second. Didn't have to do any work at all. B) lol, anyways thanks for this...I was completely stumped on what to do before I read this!

3876 - it WOULD be possible to find a buffer overflow like this, if the server application stored the requests for a short period of time, but you wouldn't get a login. the server would probably just crash (or if you crafted some shellcode you could get the server to run it)
Little Bad Wolfon February 07 2007 - 19:31:51
Maybe stupid question, but how many challenges that overflow works?B)

tnx it was awsome!!!
macfarlaneton September 19 2008 - 11:01:51
Nice!!! I've always wanted to do a buffer overflow (albeit not an entirely realistic one) in a challenge.

You rock Flash..
ShadyTyranton October 22 2008 - 06:37:55
Good article but I think you gave away to much. You basically give a step by step on how to completed this. To much of a spoiler but it is a better way then the brute force. I figured it out because I was testing XSS and SQL injection on the form and just entered in to much data.

Very nice. Thanks Flash :happy:
