Glibc Tunables Privilege Escalation

A buffer overflow exists in the GNU C Library’s dynamic loader while processing the GLIBC_TUNABLES environment variable. It has been dubbed Looney Tunables. This issue allows an local attacker to use maliciously crafted GLIBC_TUNABLES when launching binaries with SUID permission to execute code in the context of the root user. This Metasploit module targets glibc packaged on Ubuntu and Debian. Fedora 37 and 38 and other distributions of linux also come packaged with versions of glibc vulnerable to CVE-2023-4911 however this module does not target them.   Exploit Files ≈ Packet Storm
