Journal - Week Four, Day Two
1. I continued to test whether cTorrent is compatible with Systrace, and it appears to be compatible, however I am not fully knowlegable about all of the options and uses.
2. I thought it be best, before doing more extensive testing, to ensure that the exploit can be run on the machine. The exploit is found
here. The version downloaded is the same version which the exploit was tested on. However, the python on the system
is version 2.2.2 so I was able to successfully download Python 2.5 (with a little bit of trouble, as usual). In addition, the exploit was tested on a Debian Sarge (which was released after the RHL 9.0)
with a linux kernel 2.4.27-3-386. Using the command uname -r, I discovered that the kernel version on this machine is 2.4.20-8smp and an i686/386 architecture. I assumed that because that versions were an older
version of that which the exploit was tested on, that I would be able to run the exploit without problem. I attempted to run
the python script before and it didn't seem to work but after installing the new version of python, it seemed to work properly and I was able to generate a Segmentation Fault.
