Vulnerable System :

This vulnerability affects Fedora Core 4.0 (stable) with
the kernelversion 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 #1 Thu Jun 2 22:53:35 EDT 2005
(http://fedora.redhat.com)

Vulnerability Title:

pwned.c (originally and mods of it)

Vulnerability discovery and development:

Florian Strankowski discovered this Bug while trying to use
a standard sys_uselib for gaining root previlegies under
user enviroment in Fedora Core 4.
The Bug leads to a poc of gaining access to the /root directory
under the Fedora Core 4 System and maybe other ring-0 trees.

Affected systems:

- Fedora Core 4 (stable,maybe the following (not tested): testing 1, testing
2, testing 3)

Vendor notified:

Redhat Systems notified but did not publish fix

Workaround/Fix:

use grsec
