 *
 * udev < 141 Local Privilege Escalation Exploit
 * Jon Oberheide <jon@oberheide.org>
 * http://jon.oberheide.org
 *
 * Information:
 *
 *   http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1185
 *
 *   udev before 1.4.1 does not verify whether a NETLINK message originates 
 *   from kernel space, which allows local users to gain privileges by sending 
 *   a NETLINK message from user space.
 *
 * Notes:
 *   
 *   An alternate version of kcope's exploit.  This exploit leverages the 
 *   95-udev-late.rules functionality that is meant to run arbitrary commands 
 *   when a device is removed.  A bit cleaner and reliable as long as your 
 *   distro ships that rule file.
 *
 *   Tested on Gentoo, Intrepid, and Jaunty.
 *
 * Usage:
 *
 *   Pass the PID of the udevd netlink socket (listed in /proc/net/netlink, 
 *   usually is the udevd PID minus 1) as argv[1].
 *
 *   The exploit will execute /tmp/run as root so throw whatever payload you 
 *   want in there.
