Ideas for Privilege Escalation (Linux)
Ideas for Privilege Escalation (Linux)

Been reading up on privilege escalation for Linux lately. Just sharing some interesting links and methods for this. I'll make a complete guide/thread once I've gotten the hang of it more.

- Local root exploitation

In other words, kernel exploits. See thread:

- Exploiting SUID (Set User ID) files or exploiting cronjobs.

- Using symbolic links to obtain root.

- IFS exploitation.
#2 is also good resource for privilege escalation techniques.
Kinda dated, but still relevant post by the legendary g0tmi1k
