 * ja-elvis & ko-helvis - FreeBSD 3.5.1 & 4.2 ports package local root exploit
 *
 * vulnerable: versions prior to ja-elvis-1.8.4_1 and ko-helvis-1.8h2_1
 * 
 * The above two packages contain a file recovery utility 'elvrec', installed
 * suid root(4755) by default. The utility is subject to a buffer overflow 
 * leading to root privileges:
 *
 * Usage: ./elvwreck <offset> <alignment>
