I just can’t hack. I tried exploiting wu-ftpd on james’ system while it is still here, but no go. I even upgraded it and tried exploits for THAT version. (I patched it once I’d given up)
The really bad thing is that my inspiration for trying (again) was this lamerz guide to skript kiddie behavior (he didn’t present it that way) over at packetstorm… The guy used the same exploit against the same version running on the same OS, and it worked.
James says I’m enchanted… Exploits don’t work around me. Well, that’d be pretty cool, but I’d still like to be able to accomplish something that hundreds of 14 year olds straight out of windows can do… Bah!
