Description Linda Wang 2007-02-23 18:07:47 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #228886 +++

CVE-2004-1073 is still an issue -- PoC can still cause a coredump of a
non-readable binary such as /usr/bin/sudo; PoC attached; the tweak is question
is adding:

  eph.p_memsz = 4097;

Run "./poc /usr/bin/sudo" and a "core" spits out -- WFM on a 2.6.17.x kernel.
