Hi everyone! My first
(That smiley is GOOD!)
I had read the "Please READ this before posting!" sticky but still didn't find a solution so I'll try to find it here. Sorry if I still did something wrong.
I am doing some research, which requires me to compile NUSHU - passive covert channel engine for Linux 2.4 kernels
(The last post in the html).
Unfortunately, it is not supported for newer kernels.
Summary of problem:
Used makefile with command "make -f Makefile", got some .o files as a result.
Changed their permissions from their properties to allow Execution.
Tried "./FILE_NAME_HERE.o" in Terminal and got:
"bash: ./FILE_NAME_HERE.o: cannot execute binary file" response.
Trying to find a way to make the program work now.
What I did is I installed Fedora Core 1 (not sure if it's a good idea), got the files into the system and had done the following:
1: Changed a line in "Makefile" from "KHDRS=/usr/src/linux/include" to "KHDRS=/usr/src/linux-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/include", as the former directory doesn't exist.
2: Copied "ip.h" and "tcp.h" header files from "/usr/src/linux-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/include/linux" to "/usr/src/linux-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/include/net", required by some of the header files.
3: Compiled using the command "make -f Makefile", after which I get a few .o files (i.e. crypt.o, nushu_sender.o, d3des.o etc"
From manual it looks as if that's the end and the .o files are executables. I search online but didn't get much clue as to what they are
Tried to run the .o files but they cannot be executed.
I think chances are either I did not compile the files correctly or not using the right way to run the .o files, or that it doesn't work in Fedora Core 1.
That being said, I thank anyone for their trying to help!
