OSX and Root: What is the current state?

Recommended Posts


I am a Macbook user for a while ago and a pentester for another time. Having order my Rubber Ducky very recently, from what I have been reading there isn't currently a good solution regarding OSX and gaining access to root privileges.

There was in time, with a privilege escalation exploit regarding DYLD_PRINT_TO_FILE, however it looks like it has been fixed in 10.10.5. I was looking to try to install a backdoor into the system, but with this it doesn't look good.

For those who need to handle it, how do you do it? Any clue?
