Re: [Full-Disclosure] Re: Gaim festival plugin exploit
DUH... would help if I attached my attachment.
I am right proud of myself for this, and it also needs mention to
address the security issue that our friend Error (is that a reference to
Zelda 2?) raised.
Attached, find the latest reissue of the Gaim festival plugin. The guy
that wrote it, wrote it for pre-0.68 Perl API, but it was secure against
the sort of attack that Error described. I have since taken it and
recoded it to work with post-0.68 versions of Gaim. It is attached. By
all means, if you see an exploitable bug in there, let me know! I'm
just a perl-tot..
This updated version is still vulnerable. You should be *very* wary of
any call to system() or fork(). Consider this input:
"This is only a test && rm -rf /"
Notice that ';' isn't the only way to inject into a commandline.
