:cryin:/* Linux >= 2.6.13 prctl kernel exploit
 * (C) Julien TINNES
 * If you read the Changelog from 2.6.13 you've probably seen:
 *  [PATCH] setuid core dump
 * This patch mainly adds suidsafe to suid_dumpable sysctl but also a new per process,
 * user setable argument to PR_SET_DUMPABLE.
 * This flaw allows us to create a root owned coredump into any directory.
 * This is trivially exploitable.

(a) Use code blocks when posting code
(b) DO NOT post duplicate threads
(c) be more clear about precisely what help you need and provide all relevant details (which may in this case include some error messages, but to be honest I really can't decode "I wrot by linux in the terminl it's take for me message some cood problems" so it's difficult to guess what details may be relevant.)
