Description

The setuid root FinderLoadBundle that was included in older DropboxHelperTools versions for OS X allows loading of dynamically linked shared libraries that are residing in the same directory. The directory in which FinderLoadBundle is located is owned by root and that prevents placing arbitrary files there. But creating a hard link from FinderLoadBundle to somewhere in a directory in /tmp circumvents that protection thus making it possible to load a shared library containing a payload which creates a root shell.

#
# The vulnerability was fixed in newer DropboxHelperTools versions as of 3.4.*.
# However, there is no mention of this issue at the Dropbox release notes:
# https://www.dropbox.com/release_notes
#
# It seems that one of the fixes implemented in FinderLoadBundle is a
# check whether the path of the bundle is a root owned directory making it
# impossible to load arbitrary shared libraries as a non-privileged user.
# 
# I am not sure how to find the exact version of the FinderLoadBundle executable
# but the included Info.plist contained the following key:
# <key>CFBundleShortVersionString</key>
# This key is no longer present in the plist file of the latest version. So I
# included a basic vulnerable version checker that checks for the presence of
# this key.
#
# - exploit details:
# I wrote this on OS X Yosemite (10.10.5) but there are no OS specific features
# used. This exploit relies on Xcode for the shared library + root shell to be
# compiled. After successful exploitation a root shell is left in a directory in
# /tmp so make sure you delete it on your own system when you are done testing.
