        WARNING: Successful execution of this module results in /etc/passwd being overwritten.

        This module is a port of the OpenBSD X11 Xorg exploit to run on AIX.

        A permission check flaw exists for -modulepath and -logfile options when
        starting Xorg.  This allows unprivileged users that can start the server
        the ability to elevate privileges and run arbitrary code under root
        privileges.

        This module has been tested with AIX 7.1 and 7.2, and should also work with 6.1.
        Due to permission restrictions of the crontab in AIX, this module does not use cron,
        and instead overwrites /etc/passwd in order to create a new user with root privileges.
        All currently logged in users need to be included when /etc/passwd is overwritten,
        else AIX will throw 'Cannot get "LOGNAME" variable' when attempting to change user.
        The Xorg '-fp' parameter used in the OpenBSD exploit does not work on AIX,
        and is replaced by '-config', in conjuction with ANSI-C quotes to inject newlines when
        overwriting /etc/passwd.
