A directory traversal vulnerability in VMware Fusion's SUID binaries can allow an attacker to run commands as the root user.
This blog post illustrates a vulnerability we discovered in the F-Secure Internet Gatekeeper application. It shows how a simple mistake can lead to an exploitable unauthenticated remote code execution vulnerability.
By injection on the SOAP function in the EditUserPassword function, it is possible to create a "fake" user and authenticate with it.
An issue was discovered in disable_priv_mode in shell.c in GNU Bash through 5.0 patch 11. By default, if Bash is run with its effective UID not equal to its real UID, it will drop privileges by setting its effective UID to its real UID. However, it does so incorrectly. On Linux and other systems that support "saved UID" functionality, the saved UID is not dropped. An attacker with command execution in the shell can use "enable -f" for runtime loading of a new builtin, which can be a shared object that calls setuid() and therefore regains privileges. However, binaries running with an effective UID of 0 are unaffected.
