CVE-2017-6516

Status Candidate

Overview

A Local Privilege Escalation Vulnerability in MagniComp's Sysinfo before 10-H64 for Linux and UNIX platforms could allow a local attacker to gain elevated privileges. Parts of SysInfo require setuid-to-root access in order to access restricted system files and make restricted kernel calls. This access could be exploited by a local attacker to gain a root shell prompt using the right combination of environment variables and command line arguments.

MagniComp SysInfo mcsiwrapper Privilege Escalation
Posted Feb 20, 2018
Authored by Brendan Coles, Daniel Lawson, Romain Trouve | Site metasploit.com

This Metasploit module attempts to gain root privileges on systems running MagniComp SysInfo versions prior to 10-H64. The .mcsiwrapper suid executable allows loading a config file using the '--configfile' argument. The 'ExecPath' config directive is used to set the executable load path. This Metasploit module abuses this functionality to set the load path resulting in execution of arbitrary code as root. This Metasploit module has been tested successfully with SysInfo version 10-H63 on Fedora 20 x86_64, 10-H32 on Fedora 27 x86_64, 10-H10 on Debian 8 x86_64, and 10-GA on Solaris 10u11 x86.
