Almost every program using MS's C Runtime library for select() will suffer
from this problem. This vulnerability is only a problem if it listens on a
port. For example, nslookup.exe from Microsoft uses a whole bunch of CRT
calls, including select(), but doesn't listen on any ports.

Look for programs that use select(), and load msvcrt.dll (or close
relations, and/or statically link with them). The CRT has been known broken
for a long time.

If you port programs from Unix-land, please do yourselves a favor, and
change code that relies heavily on select() or poll() to use native winsock
async I/O. Not only do you get far higher throughput, it's likely that you
will be far more robust.
