# Exploit Title: OpenSMTPD 6.6.1 - Local Privilege Escalation
# Date: 2020-02-02
# Exploit Author: Marco Ivaldi
# Vendor Homepage: https://www.opensmtpd.org/
# Version: OpenSMTPD 6.4.0 - 6.6.1
# Tested on: OpenBSD 6.6, Debian GNU/Linux bullseye/sid with opensmtpd 6.6.1p1-1
# CVE: CVE-2020-7247

#!/usr/bin/perl

# Copyright (c) 2020 Marco Ivaldi <raptor@0xdeadbeef.info>
#
# smtp_mailaddr in smtp_session.c in OpenSMTPD 6.6, as used in OpenBSD 6.6 and
# other products, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands as root
# via a crafted SMTP session, as demonstrated by shell metacharacters in a MAIL
# FROM field. This affects the "uncommented" default configuration. The issue
# exists because of an incorrect return value upon failure of input validation
# (CVE-2020-7247).
#
# "Wow. I feel all butterflies in my tummy that bugs like this still exist. 
# That's awesome :)" -- skyper
#
# This exploit targets OpenBSD's OpenSMTPD in order to escalate privileges to
# root on OpenBSD in the default configuration, or execute remote commands as 
# root (only in OpenSMTPD "uncommented" default configuration).
