# Much appreciation goes to John H for all kindsa random shit like exploiting Veritas and other random things in the past
#
# core... where the hell are you fool. 
#
# This is just a vanilla format string exploit for OSX on ppc. We overwrite a saved return addy with our shellcode address.
# This code currently overwrites a saved return addy with the stack location of our seteuid() / execve() shellcode.
#
# This exploit will create a malicious .plist file for you to use with launchctl
# kevin-finisterres-mac-mini:~ kfinisterre$ launchctl load ./com.pwnage.plist
#
# In theory I guess you could also drop this in ~/Library/LaunchAgents
# 
# This was tested against OSX 10.4.6 8l127 on a 1.25GHz PowerPC G4 and a
# 500mhz PowerPC G3 running 10.4 8A428
# 
# kevin-finisterres-mac-mini:~ kfinisterre$ ls -al /sbin/launchd
