Metasploit modules for CVE-2011-4885

  • Hashtable Collisions
    Disclosure Date : 2011-12-28
    This module uses a denial-of-service (DoS) condition appearing in a variety of programming languages. This vulnerability occurs when storing multiple values in a hash table and all values have the same hash value. This can cause a web server parsing the POST parameters issued with a request into a hash table to consume hours of CPU with a single HTTP request. Currently, only the hash functions for PHP and Java are implemented. This module was tested with PHP + httpd, Tomcat, Glassfish and Geronimo. It also generates a random payload to bypass some IDS signatures. Authors: - Alexander Klink - Julian Waelde - Scott A. Crosby - Dan S.
