.. / file
Star

Each line is corrupted by a prefix string and wrapped inside quotes, so this may not be suitable for binary files.

If a line in the target file begins with a #, it will not be printed as these lines are parsed as comments.

It can also be provided with a directory and will read each file in the directory.

File read

It reads data from files, it may be used to do privileged reads or disclose files outside a restricted file system.

SUID

It runs with the SUID bit set and may be exploited to access the file system, escalate or maintain access with elevated privileges working as a SUID backdoor. If it is used to run sh -p, omit the -p argument on systems like Debian (<= Stretch) that allow the default sh shell to run with SUID privileges.

Sudo

It runs in privileged context and may be used to access the file system, escalate or maintain access with elevated privileges if enabled on sudo.
