Description
===========
SAP DB is an open source database server sponsored by SAP AG that provides
a series of web tools to administer database servers via web browsers.
These tools can be integrated into third-party web servers such as IIS, or
run on its own web server which by default is installed to TCP Port 9999.

When installed as its own web server, the process waHTTP.exe is found to
be listening on TCP Port 9999.

******************************************************

By making the request again, but ammeding the Cookie Value, or if one is
not prersent, simply add it as an HTTP header request, we can cause a
stack based overflow within WAHTTP.exe

The same Overflow can also be achieved in numerous other fields.

If we take the sapdbwa_GetQueryString, we can simply pass an additional
parameter by appending & + string
