# GNS-3 Mac OS-X LPE local root exploit
# =====================================
# GNS-3 on OS-X bundles the "ubridge" binary as a setuid
# root file. This file can be used to read arbitary files
# using "-f" arguement but also as it runs as root can also
# write arbitrary files with "pcap_file" arguement within
# configuration ini file. It is possible to abuse this utility
# to also write arbitary contents by bridging a UDP tunnel
# and writing to disk. We can exploit these mishaps to gain
# root privileges on a host that has GNS-3 installed by
# writing a malicious crontab entry and escalating privileges.
# This exploit takes advantage of this flaw to overwrite
# root crontab with our own entry and to spawn a root shell.
# Don't forget to clean up in /usr/lib/spool/tabs and /tmp
# after running. Tested on GNS-3 version 1.5.2. The root user
# must have a crontab installed (even an empty one set with
# crontab -e) or the box rebooted after first attempt to get
# commands to execute with this cron method.
