Discovered by a student that wishes to remain anonymous in the course
CTF.
This 0day exploit for Backtrack 5 R2 was discovered by a student in the
InfoSec Institute Ethical Hacking class, during an evening CTF exercise.
The
student wishes to remain anonymous, he has contributed a python version
of
the 0day, a patch that can be applied to wicd, as well as a writeup
detailing the discovery and exploitation process. You can find a python
version of the exploit and full write up with patch here:
