[ale] Please Help



I was not pointing fingers.  I was making a comment that if I did the
commands in my email that
I would no gain root access.  I should have gained root.

[root at cfowler root]# cd /home/cfowler
[root at cfowler cfowler]# cp /bin/bahs .sh
cp: cannot stat `/bin/bahs': No such file or directory
[root at cfowler cfowler]# cp /bin/bash .sh
[root at cfowler cfowler]# chmod 4755 .sh
[root at cfowler cfowler]# su - cfowler
[cfowler at cfowler cfowler]$ ./sh
bash: ./sh: No such file or directory
[cfowler at cfowler cfowler]$ ./.sh
.sh-2.05$ exit
exit
[cfowler at cfowler cfowler]$ ls -l .sh
-rwsr-xr-x    1 root     root       519964 Mar 28 14:08 .sh
[cfowler at cfowler cfowler]$
[cfowler at cfowler cfowler]$ ./.sh
.sh-2.05$ cd /root
.sh: cd: /root: Permission denied
.sh-2.05$

Notice how I do not have root even though my shell is 4755 and owned by
root.

Hi there,

Yes - I understand that there are security risks, however the perl scritp
does some very harsh integrity checking before is runs any commands so I am
not to worried...

Thanks
