Madcow

Based on the proof-of-concept code in diryc0w.c

I hold no responsibility for anything done with this code

Madcow lets a non-priviledged user change the root password on a vulnerable Ubuntu using the, recently made popular, dirtycow bug. Tested on Linux Mint 18.

Usage

Clone the repo

make

./madcow newrootpassword
