Hey I was doing some research and scanning on my network and apparently there is a buffer overflow in mod_frontpage. Now I do not know anything about overflows but I will be reading up in the mean time. I was just wondering if I would be able to exploit this myself sides it is on my network, mine as well try it. However I cannot find an exploit for Apaches mod_frontpage. There is a ton of information on it being vulnerable. But cannot find an exploit. Well if you know any places to look pleace let me know. Wow, this was a terrible post, I should just not stop looking. Wasting time.
Well also I have a FreeBSD server I just installed. Any ideas what to do with it? I know they are mainly used for servers, but, I don't know, anyone know of something interesting.
The vunerability was posted on the Bugtraq list in March of 2002, I doubt your version is vulnerable (Vulnerable versions are 1.3.1-1.5.1).

+1 on the above, if it isn't your version than it likely won't work, there up to 2.2.10 right now . If your's IS this (then u installed a while back ), then use the description of the vulnerability to code your own PoC code.
