A few weeks ago I learned about LinEnum. It’s original author owen described it as follows:

It’s a very basic shell script that performs over 65 checks, getting anything from kernel information to locating possible escalation points such as potentially useful SUID/GUID files and Sudo/rhost mis-configurations and more.

The first thing that came to my mind was if this script will work on OS X. I cloned the GitHub repository to my Mac and was immediately greeted with multiple error messages. As I had some spare minutes I forked the repository and fixed the most major bugs.


As I had to disable some tests I hope to find some more time to fix and reenable them. My goal is to maintain the Linux compatibility and only extend the script to fully work on OS X. I think this could become be a handy quick-check tool.
