          This module exploits a command injection in TimeMachine on macOS <= 10.14.3 in
        order to run a payload as root. The tmdiagnose binary on OSX <= 10.14.3 suffers
        from a command injection vulnerability that can be exploited by creating a
        specially crafted disk label.

          The tmdiagnose binary uses awk to list every mounted volume, and composes
        shell commands based on the volume labels. By creating a volume label with the
        backtick character, we can have our own binary executed with root priviledges.
