# raptor_libnspr2 - Solaris 10 libnspr LD_PRELOAD exploit
# Copyright (c) 2006 Marco Ivaldi <raptor@0xdeadbeef.info>
#
# Local exploitation of a design error vulnerability in version 4.6.1 of
# NSPR, as included with Sun Microsystems Solaris 10, allows attackers to
# create or overwrite arbitrary files on the system. The problem exists 
# because environment variables are used to create log files. Even when the
# program is setuid, users can specify a log file that will be created with 
# elevated privileges (CVE-2006-4842).
#
# Newschool version of local root exploit via LD_PRELOAD (hi KF!). Another
# possible (but less l33t;) attack vector is /var/spool/cron/atjobs.
#
# See also: http://www.0xdeadbeef.info/exploits/raptor_libnspr
#
# Usage:
# $ chmod +x raptor_libnspr2
# $ ./raptor_libnspr2
# [...]
