An automated script that download potential exploit for linux kernel from exploitdb, and compile them automatically
This script is created due to Hackademics, there are so much possible exploit for that version of kernel, as a rookie OSCP student, I am not able to find out the correct exploit, also I am too lazy to test them one by one. So I hope this script can help me in the future.
First, it search for linux pirvilege escalation from the exploitdb in local directory by searchsploit.
Pass in the kernel version as first parameter, it lists potential exploit, and ask if you want to copy them from the local directory.
After that, it asks if you want to compile the downloaded C file.
Then, it will ask if you want to make a tar ball of the directory.
And it will show the summary of the downloaded files.
Script Environment: Kali 3.18.0 kali2
Test result in Kali 4.0 is negative for this script, need to redesign the architecture, maybe python is more suitable to do this automation, need to think again.
16 Mar 25 Updated with Python version of this idea, more adaptable to different kali environment and more easy to change the code in this way.
16 Apr 30 After almost finishes with all the boxes in OSCP, I have to admit I have not use this script at all during my lab times. There is one thing I learnt from the labs, do not run exploit blindly, as exploits might cause the system to crash, or leaves your footprint in a way you cannot imagine etc. Always enumerate more and gather all the information you have to escalate. DO NOT run the exploit blindly without knowing what the exploit does.
