===========
Description
===========
By sending a specially crafted series of packets to the LGSERVER.EXE
process that listens on TCP port 2200, it is possible to cause
LGSERVER.EXE to write very large files to the system disk. In addition,
the LGSERVER.EXE process becomes unresponsive until the file has been
written.

=================
Technical Details
=================
Upon every authentication attempt to LGSERVER.EXE a file is created within
D:\CA_BABLDdata\Server\data\transfer. This file has an extention of .USX
which would take the format of something like (where X is equal to 0-9 or
A-F) - RWXXX.usx

During the negotiation, within the third packet at HEX address of (DWORD)
0x15 - 0x18, you will normally see the value 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 followed
by CoreDataDB.

When sending this packet the contents are written to this USX file.
However, if we pass a DWORD value of 0xff 0xff 0xff 0x7f at the address
0x15-0x18, we write an additional 2,096,153KB NULLS to the USX file.
