[=] Affected software : 

        Name : Kojoney
	Description : Low interaction SSH honeypot
	Version : <
        Service : TCP/22

[=] Patched version : 


[=] Technical details : 

Emulation of the wget and curl commands is made via calls to
urllib.urlopen(url). The only sanity check is the following :

	if url.find("://") == -1:
url = "http://" + url 

This will catch some attempts to access local files like
"file:/etc/hosts" but requesting "file://localhost/foo/bar" is still

Under Linux, this can be used to access "file://localhost/dev/urandom".
The kojoney.py process will then use 100% of CPU and will grow in
memory, until killed by the kernel OOM Killer.

[=] Note :

When exploiting urlopen() related vulnerabilities in Python
applications, some little known features can come handy :

=> returned value is "HelloWorld"

=> returned value is the EICAR test string

And yes, these strings too bypass the "://" Kojoney check ;-)
