elksemu - Embedded Linux Kernel Subset emulator
is a program that allows 8086ELKS
programs to be run under Linux-i386. These programs can be compiled usingthebcc(1)
It is not usual to invoke/lib/elksemudirectly, either the simple patch or kernel module distributed with it will cause the kernel to run/lib/elksemuwith the correct arguments whenever the user tries to execute an ELKS executable directly.
There are no flag options to elksemu, the first argument is the name of theprogram to run the rest are arguments that are passed to the Elks program.
The elksemuprogram is normally installed suid-root and in this event it is able torun execute only (chmod 111) elks executables and act correctly on thesuid permission bits on those executable. This may be considered asecurity hazard so elksemu doesnothave to be installed suid-root.
Elksemu is incomplete.
The program may still have security bugs!
