UNIX-PrivEsc

This is just an effort to aggregate local UNIX privilege escalation exploits. They are all publicly available but don't allow for a sensible overview + it's always the quirky ones that you can't find when you need them. I am going to progressively push out exploits from a few sources which are listed below for reference.

Import Complete:

  1. http://exploit.linuxnote.org
  2. http://www.0xdeadbeef.info/ (Partial, x86 Solaris + AIX)

To Do List:

  1. http://web.archive.org/web/20111118031158/http://tarantula.by.ru/localroot/
  2. http://www.0xdeadbeef.info/ (Raptor Kit)
  3. OSX (Google-fu)
  4. Exploit-DB (anything that's missing)

WARNING

Be careful, the compiled exploits in the repo could contain ANYTHING, you may launch them and get root or "rm -rf /" or discover the formula for time travel! They have been added here for the odd sticky situation but I would never recommend running them if an alternative is available and certainly not without manual inspection!
