Description Marcel Holtmann 2007-06-08 10:09:42 UTC
CVE-2004-1073 is still an issue -- a patched 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

To reproduce, do
* grab poc at the end of advisory.
* add line "eph.p_memsz = 4096;" after "eph.p_filesz = 4096;"
  where first "4096" is something equal to or greater than 4096.
* ./poc /usr/bin/sudo && ls -l

Here I get:

  -rw------- 1 ad   ad	 102400 2007-01-15 19:17 core
  ---s--x--x 2 root root 101820 2007-01-15 19:15 /usr/bin/sudo

Check for MAY_READ as binfmt_misc.c does.
