๐Ÿ› ๏ธ Living off the land

Theory

Living of the Land is a well known privilege escalation technique, where an attacker will leverage binaries found on the attacked machine to perform a privilege escalation. Indeed, many UNIX programs have options that can be exploited to open a shell. Therefore if we can start the program we exploit as another user, we might be able to open a shell as this user !
Most of the payloads to do this on UNIX programs can be found on lolbas-project.github.io.
