Nginx Vulnerability on FreeBSD

Hi,

I am trying to do a security research experiment on FreeBSD.
I try to test the Nginx Vulnerability CVE-2013-2028 on FreeBSD 10.1
x86-64,
with Nginx 1.3.9/1.4.0.
(https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-2028)

However, most exploit samples can succeed on Linux, but not FreeBSD.
The basic idea for the exploit, is to send a packet with a very large
chunk
size, making the victim process stack-overflow. After Nginx’s many
crashes,
the attacker can find enough gadgets to launch a return-oriented
programming attack.

However, it is hard to let Nginx worker process crash (due to
overwritten
return address) on FreeBSD. Process crash is the first step of the whole
exploit. I do the experiment on both local and remote (LAN) machines.

This exploit requires:

This also includes an IP fragmentation router to make the attack
possible
on WANs. Nginx does a non-blocking read on a 4096 byte buffer, and
typical
MTUs are 1500, so IP fragmentation is needed to deliver a large TCP
segment
that will result in a single read of over 4096 bytes.

Any comments/suggestions on this, just to make the victim process crash?

Here are two exploit code examples, which can run against Linux target,
but
fail to make the Nginx worker process crash on FreeBSD:

Thanks very much for your time!!
