===============
1) Introduction
===============


Chatman is an intranet application combining chat (in IRC style), files
transfer and some games.

2) Bug
======


Each data block exchanged by Chatman is constituited by a 32 bits
number used to identify the data size.

The amount of memory specified by this number is immediately allocated
but if it is too big (and so allocation fails) the program terminates
automatically.

Also if the program uses the TCP protocol is possible to crash any
Chatman host in the LAN simply sending a "new user" broadcast packet,
they will automatically connect to the attacker that can passively
exploit the bug as described previously.
