linuxprivchecker on


A Linux privilege escalation check script.

This script is intended to be executed locally on a Linux box to enumerate basic system info and search for common privilege escalation vectors such as world writable files, misconfigurations, clear-text passwords and applicable exploits.

Linuxprivchecker is designed to identify potential areas to investigate further, not provide direct action or exploitation. This is to help users further learn how these privilege escalations work and keep it in line with the rules, for self directed exploitation, laid out for the OSCP, HTB, and other CTFs/exams.
