I thought I would pass this blurb along, taken on #grsecurity and the
subject was security. Just to let everyone know I am awaiting these exploits
to be released to the respected parties in due time or an apology for
falsifying these claims.
[22:22] <spender> is exec-shield in debian yet?
[22:23] <BlackNet> i had it working under debian
[22:23] <BlackNet> kernel-patch-exec-shield - Protection against stack
smashing and other attacks.
[22:23] <spender> i mean, is it in mainline debian
[22:23] <spender> ah okay
[22:23] <spender> so good i can release this exploit the day after fedora
core 2 then
[22:23] <spender> two birds with one stone
[22:24] <BlackNet> what exploit?
[22:24] <spender> i'm just lying
[22:25] <spender> it doesn't exist
[22:25] <spender> it didn't exist when i said it did months ago on the
[22:25] <spender> and it didn't exist when exec-shield was first written
[22:25] <spender> so just ignore me
[22:26] <BlackNet> so this hole was never fixed?
[22:26] <spender> brb, setting up a fake test system with a fake exec-shield
kernel to write a fake exploit
[22:30] * Joins: Method
[22:34] * BlackNet holds his breath and passes out from the excitment
[22:34] <spender> there are 2 holes really
[22:34] <spender> so i'll release just one
[22:35] <spender> and then state my intent to release the second in 3 months
[22:35] <BlackNet> care to share some details on the first one?
[22:35] <spender> nah
[22:35] <spender> well, the one is very serious
[22:35] <spender> the other is serious, but only in certain situations
[22:35] <BlackNet> who found it?
[22:36] <spender> me
[22:36] <BlackNet> well congrats
[22:36] <spender> i found it the day exec-shield was released
[22:37] <BlackNet> so when's the release date
[22:37] <spender> when would be the best time after fedora core 2 is out?
[22:37] <spender> that's what i'm waiting on
[22:37] <BlackNet> why wait?
[22:37] <spender> but i'd like for it to be installed on a couple machines
[22:37] <spender> so there's a real threat
[22:38] <spender> would a gtk or qt exploit be good too?
[22:38] <BlackNet> send 'em in if you have 'em
[22:38] <spender> oh i'll send it in
[22:40] <BlackNet> how many do you have that's not released?
[22:41] <spender> 2 for exec-shield
[22:41] <spender> 3 for systrace
[22:41] <spender> 1 for DTE
[22:41] <spender> ~10 for LIDS
[22:42] <BlackNet> that's alot
[22:42] <spender> oh
[22:42] <spender> 3 i think for linsec
[22:43] <BlackNet> all of these are non-reported?
[22:43] <spender> correct
[22:43] <spender> well
[22:43] <spender> 1 lids and DTE bug i released recently
[22:43] <BlackNet> wow you do some work
[22:43] <spender> to a channel of blackhats
[22:43] <spender> it's the same bug, just present in both
[22:44] <BlackNet> ah
[22:44] <BlackNet> so which one you going to release first?
[22:44] <spender> hmm
[22:45] <spender> i think the serious one
[22:45] <spender> so there's no chance that it can be spun in any way to
allow it to be ignored
