Props to Dan Crowley (@dan_crowley) at Core Security Technologies
for doing the research on Windows File Pseudonyms and coming up
with the idea for this buffer overflow.
His presentation can be found here:
The TYPE command in Windows is equivalent to cat in *nix. It simply
outputs the contents of a file to stdout. If you use TYPE in conjunction
with the device file CON, you can feed stdin into a file.
Example: TYPE CON > evil.txt
CON is also interpreted as a file so you can append an extension to
it. Supplying a overly large extension will overflow the structured
This buffer overflow is not exploitable since cmd.exe and it's DLLs
are all compiled with SafeSEH. Oh well. :#D
TYPE CON.<A * 626><B * 2><C * 2372>
Note: The two B's is where the SEH is overwritten.
