Description

This Metasploit module exploits a hidden backdoor API in Apple's Admin framework on Mac OS X to escalate privileges to root, dubbed Rootpipe. Tested on Yosemite 10.10.2 and should work on previous versions. The patch for this issue was not backported to older releases. Note: you must run this exploit as an admin user to escalate to root.
