||This module exploits a remote buffer overflow in the Citrix Provisioning Services 5.6 SP1 (without Hotfix CPVS56SP1E043) by sending a malformed packet to the 6905/UDP port. The module has been successfully tested on Windows Server 2003 SP2, Windows 7, and Windows XP SP3.

Citrix Provisioning Services is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by streamprocess.exe component. By sending request type 0x40020006 to UDP Port 6905 a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with SYSTEM privileges or cause the application to crash.

TCP ports use the Transmission Control Protocol. TCP is the most commonly used protocol
on the Internet and any TCP/IP network. Whereas the IP protocol deals only with packets, TCP enables two hosts
to establish a connection and exchange streams of data. TCP guarantees delivery of data
and that packets will be delivered in the same order in which they were sent.
Guaranteed communication/delivery is the key difference between TCP and UDP.
UDP ports use the Datagram Protocol, a communications protocol for the Internet network,
transport, and session layers. Like TCP (Transmission Control Protocol),
UDP is used with IP (the Internet Protocol) and makes possible the transmission of datagrams
from one computer to applications on another computer, but unlike TCP, UDP is connectionless
and does not guarantee reliable communication; it's up to the application that received
the message to process any errors and verify correct delivery. UDP is often used with time-sensitive
applications, such as audio/video streaming, where dropping some packets is preferable to waiting for delayed data.
