<|>Subject: [Full-Disclosure] Quick JPEG/GDI test & fix (timesaver)
<|>I wrote a very simple program/batch file that tests for the JPEG
<|>exploit, then if affected, provides instructions on how to patch the
<|>exploit. It has been tested on my own lil happy lab network, as well
<|>as one one network where I'm a sysadmin. (Tested on Windows XP Home
<|>and Pro, SP1a and SP2.)
<|>It DOES test for the exploit by attempting to use an "infected" JPG
<|>which downloads the instructions for fixing it, if exploited. By
<|>viewing the strings in the JPG, you can see the file it downloads and
<|>check it out for yourself. It's clean. =) Just contains a batch file
<|>and a program to launch the batch file. (The file that gets
<|>is a simple SFX.) Links are below. It contains a warning saying it's
<|>about to try to exploit the system and to save data in open programs.
<|>(It also warns that Explorer may crash.)
<|>I wrote this merely to save myself time and allow friends/family to
<|>test their own systems, then patch them without having to call me for
<|>help. It's not been tested in every environment and in every
<|>If you find a problem, feel free to email me (exploit _AT_ guidoz
<|>_DOT_ com) Obviously I'm not responsible if it's abused
<|>somehow, or if
<|>it breaks something, etc. Feel free to modify it to suit your own
<|>needs, but use it at your own risk.
<|>Test can be downloaded from here:
<|>Again, it's just an SFX archive with a batch file. Hopefully it will
<|>save someone else some time. I've used it to have friends/family (and
<|>a few clients) patch a total of around 30 machines without problems.

Well, guess I'm safe. McAfee saw it as "Exploit-MntRedir.gen" and said...NO!
I googled it and it found nothing though. Thought it would atleast lead me
to McAfee. McAfee search said:
"We found no records matching the following criteria:
Virus name containing "MntRedir.gen".
Please try narrowing your search by using fewer characters".
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
