# Copyright (c) 2019 Marco Ivaldi <raptor@0xdeadbeef.info>
#
# Exploitation of a design error vulnerability in xscreensaver, as 
# distributed with Solaris 11.x, allows local attackers to create
# (or append to) arbitrary files on the system, by abusing the -log
# command line switch introduced in version 5.06. This flaw can be
# leveraged to cause a denial of service condition or to escalate
# privileges to root. This is a Solaris-specific vulnerability,
# caused by the fact that Oracle maintains a slightly different
# codebase from the upstream one (CVE-2019-3010).
#
# "I'd rather be lucky than good any day." -- J. R. "Bob" Dobbs
# "Good hackers force luck." -- ~A.
#
# This exploit targets the /usr/lib/secure/ directory in order
# to escalate privileges with the LD_PRELOAD technique. The
# implementation of other exploitation vectors, including those
# that do not require gcc to be present on the target system, is
# left as an exercise to fellow UNIX hackers;)
#
# Usage:
# raptor@stalker:~$ chmod +x raptor_xscreensaver
# raptor@stalker:~$ ./raptor_xscreensaver
# [...]
# Oracle Corporation      SunOS 5.11      11.4    Aug 2018

# uid=0(root) gid=0(root)
# root@stalker:~# rm /usr/lib/secure/64/getuid.so /tmp/getuid.*

# Vulnerable platforms:
