Threat: Backdoor.Win32.Xel
Vulnerability: Remote Buffer Overflow
Description: Xel listens on TCP port 8023 and requires authentication good for them!, upon connecting you are greeted with a password prompt:

XeL TROJAN based on ULTOR'S TROJAN

password:

For incorrect passwords we get "Wrong password" response. However, by entering a password with a length of about 125 characters, we trigger the buffer overflow vuln. Moreover, we can also send a larger payload using TCP socket to supply shellcode.

Password string: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABBBBBBBB

The below PoC, last eight bytes 42424242 (B) will overwrite the instruction pointer (EIP), potentially allowing control of the malwares execution flow and undermining its authentication mechanism.
