Re: Local suid files and buffer overflows

first of all apologies for asking such a newbie question but I am trying
to learn how to exploit buffer overflows and therefore wrote a little
program to exploit. This little program has the following permissions:

$ ls -la test1
-rwsr-sr-x  1 root root 17164 Oct  8 01:25 test1

Now I exploited it using Aleph One's shellcode (see
http://shellcode.org/shellcode/linux/null-free/) but I won't get a SUID
shell afterwards (I know the exploit did work but I still have my normal
user privleges). Why? I have tried a different shellcode to write a file
and this file was root:root. Any ideas, hints, rtfm?

Thank you.

Use a setreuid/setuid shellcode <http://shellcode.org/shellcode/linux/setuid/>
