 * raptor_prctl.c - Linux 2.6.x suid_dumpable vulnerability
 * Copyright (c) 2006 Marco Ivaldi <raptor@0xdeadbeef.info>
 *
 * The suid_dumpable support in Linux kernel 2.6.13 up to versions before 
 * 2.6.17.4, and 2.6.16 before 2.6.16.24, allows a local user to cause a denial 
 * of service (disk consumption) and POSSIBILY (yeah, sure;) gain privileges 
 * via the PR_SET_DUMPABLE argument of the prctl function and a program that 
 * causes a core dump file to be created in a directory for which the user does 
 * not have permissions (CVE-2006-2451).
 *
 * Berlin, Sunday July 9th 2006: CAMPIONI DEL MONDO! CAMPIONI DEL MONDO!
 * CAMPIONI DEL MONDO! (i was tempted to name this exploit "pajolo.c";))
 *
 * Greets to Paul Starzetz and Roman Medina, who also exploited this ugly bug.
 *
 * NOTE. This exploit uses the Vixie's crontab /etc/cron.d attack vector: this
 * means that distributions that use a different configuration (namely Dillon's
 * crontab on Slackware Linux) can be vulnerable but not directly exploitable.
 *
 * Usage:
 * $ gcc raptor_prctl.c -o raptor_prctl -Wall
 * [exploit must be dinamically linked]
 * $ ./raptor_prctl
 * [...]
 * sh-3.00#
 *
 * Vulnerable platforms:
 * Linux from 2.6.13 up to 2.6.17.4 [tested on SuSE Linux 2.6.13-15.8-default]
