Subject: Re: Re: CVE-2017-5123 Linux kernel v4.13 waitid()
	not calling access_ok()

Hello again list,

Here's a video on how I bypassed KASLR and got root using only  
CVE-2017-5123, a non-controlled arbitrary write (though 0's are  
written), without a single read.

"This exploit uses solely CVE-2017-5123, a Linux kernel vulnerability  
for 4.12-4.13, which gives an attacker a write-not-what-only-where  
primitive, or in other words, the ability to write non-controlled user  
data to arbitrary kernel memory.
KASLR is bypassed using memory probing and root obtained via cred  
struct spraying and location predictability.

Music is from Sonic the Hedgehog (1991) for the Sega Genesis."

I may write a more detailed write-up if people seem interested. :)

Federico Bento.
