This Metasploit module writes to the sudoers file without root access by exploiting rsh and malloc log files. Makes sudo require no password, giving access to su even if root is disabled. Works on OS X 10.9.5 to 10.10.5 (patched on 10.11).

issetugid() + rsh + libmalloc OS X Local Root
Posted Oct 3, 2015
Authored by Philip Pettersson

The default root-suid binary /usr/bin/rsh on Mac OS X uses execv() in an insecure manner. /usr/bin/rsh will invoke /usr/bin/rlogin if launched with only a host argument, without dropping privileges or clearing the environment. This exploit will pass "MallocLogFile" to /usr/bin/rsh, which is then passed on to rlogin and interpreted by libmalloc to create a root-owned file with partially controlled contents at /etc/crontab which gives a rootshell via sudo. Tested on 10.9.5 / 10.10.5 but it most likely works on much older versions too.
