How It Works

LetterBomb works by exploiting a buffer overflow exploit in the Wii Messaging Board. By addressing a specific letter to the Wii (by using it’s MAC Addresses), you can cause the Wii to read such a large message that it overflows and accidentally reads and executes the embedded Homebrew Channel inside of the letter’s file.
