IDA Pro 6.3 ELF Anti-Debugging / Reversing Patcher

/*
*
* IDA Pro 6.3 (crash due an internal error)
* ELF anti-debugging/reversing patcher
*
* Published @ IOActive Labs Research blog:
* http://blog.ioactive.com/2012/12/striking-back-gdb-and-ida-debuggers.html
*
* - nitr0us [ http://twitter.com/nitr0usmx ]
*
* Tested under:
* IDA Pro Starter License 6.3.120531 (Mac OS X)
* IDA Pro Demo 6.3.120730 (Ubuntu Linux 9.04)
* IDA Pro Demo 6.3.120730 (Mac OS X 10.7.3)
* IDA Pro Demo 6.3.120730 (Windows Vista Home Premium SP2)
*
* Bug found using Frixyon fuzzer (my ELF file format fuzzer still in development)
*
* Timeline:
* 21/11/2012 The bug was found on IDA Demo 6.3
* 22/11/2012 The bug was tested on IDA Pro Starter License 6.3.120531 (32-bit)
* 22/11/2012 The bug was reported through the official Hex-Rays contact emails
* 23/11/2012 Hex-Rays replied and agreed that the bug leads to an unrecoverable
* state and it will be fixed on the next release

**************** TECHNICAL DETAILS ***********************
nitr0us@burial:~$ gdb -q idaq
(gdb) r a.out
(no debugging symbols found) 

Program received signal SIGTRAP, Trace/breakpoint trap.
[Switching to Thread 0xb6860760 (LWP 3638)]

The root cause of the problem is that there’s no validation to verify if e_shstrndx e_shnum before referencing it.
