After reading about the recent vulnerabilities with previous versions, I thought I should take another look at the json listener on port 3333 and see if there was any avenues of attack.

echo -e '{"id":1,"jsonrpc":"1.0","method":"test"}' | nc 3333 & printf "\n"

After realizing the buffer was printed I decided to try a few others…

Sending %s does return some strings, however I couldn’t get the hex addresses padded properly to dig in more as I kept getting unable to parse json errors. Sending %p also did yield some results but I’m sure someone more qualified may be able to exploit the stack further…

Finally, sending %n completely kills the mining process.

echo -e '{"id":1,"jsonrpc":"1.0","method":"%n"}' | nc 3333 & printf "\n"

Keep your rigs up to date, or stop opening port 3333 to the public. Seriously.
