Re: [Full-disclosure] Insect Pro - Advisory 2011 0428 - Zero Day - Heap Buffer Overflow in xMatters APClient

Well... I am only saying, this place is NOT a place where 'web fuzzing'
should be the main topic of interest, specially when it is related to
software wich costs money and does not even have any trial..
It also, produced a false, on many occassions.
Acutenix consultant would do this, and guess what, get a cracked copy, and
they STILL let ya be a consultant!!
neat huh??
Now with this and Insect... you cannot do any ill.. your hard working
product, doesnt even scan right, and there is no free version... there is
only 'email' ones as ive seen, so what kinda shit is that, posting to grok
??? eh ???
Im with the others... the tests show the truth, truth is, the product
stinks, even when given the second glance.
Your peers vote i think, against this app...and, unless you maybe fix it,
and, even use some open src tosdo so (maybe learn something about 'opening')
the product, and more people will be happy to debug for you.. but alone,
your , insect waiting to be squashed :P lol...pardon my fracoise'

Precisely. The poc triggers the bug by passing a very long command line
argument, so it's assumed the attacker already has executed code. The only
way this is exploitable is if the binary has suid (then the attacker can
elevate privileges) or the command can be executed remotely (and the
attacker additionaly cannot execute any other commands, but can mysteriously
control the arguments). Unless either scenario is researched (and nothing in
the advisory tells me so) I call bullshit.

Is the suid bit set on that binary? Otherwise, unless I'm missing
it doesn't seem to be exploitable by an attacker...

Who cares? You got code executed on the remote box, that's the *hard*
Use that to inject a callback shell or something, use *that* to get
yourself a shell
prompt. At that point, download something else that exploits you to root
- if
you even *need* to, as quite often the Good Stuff is readable by non-root
