arbitrary binaries with Local System Privileges
Release Date: 16 August 2007

Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability in iTunes for Windows

for 32-bit installations and in "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\
{0DD0EEEE-2A7C-411C-9243-1AE62F445FC3}\x64" for 64-bit installations. The
installer installs in this directory DifXInstall32.exe or DifXInstall64.exe for
32-bit or 64-bit installations, respectively, along with DIFxAPI.dll and other
files. After the installer writes these files to the directory, it will execute
DifXInstall32.exe or DifXInstall64.exe in the context of Local System, a
privileged user.

On a standard Windows installation, unprivileged users have write-access to
"%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data". As such, prior to a first-time iTunes
installation, an unprivileged attacker can create these directories and place a

Insomnia : ISVA-081020.1 - Altiris Deployment Server Agent - Privilege Escalation

Altiris packages to allow the Deployment Server to manage software
for machines. It is usually installed to 
C:\Program Files\Altiris\AClient and the main running agent 
is called AClient.exe. 

By default the agent runs under the Local System account and is
vulnerable to numerous Shatter Attack vulnerabilities leading
to an attacker running code under the Local System privilege.

We reported a first instance of this vulnerability which was
then patched, we then alerted Symantec to the second vulnerability.

Cisco Security Advisory: Local Privilege Escalation Vulnerabilities in Cisco VPN Client

Summary
=======

Two vulnerabilities exist in the Cisco VPN Client for Microsoft Windows
that may allow unprivileged users to elevate their privileges to those of
the LocalSystem account.

A workaround exists for one of the two vulnerabilities disclosed in this
advisory.

Cisco has made free software available to address these vulnerabilities

AVAST Internet Security Suite - Persistent Vulnerabilities

Details:
========
It has been discovered that the avast Internet Security Suite is vulnerable to persistent code injection and local command path injection vulnerability. 
During the testing, I was able to successfully read/load and execute any file/application from local system having the local admin privileges.

Initially the bug was an HTML code injection flaw only however, with more deep analysis, it was revealed that the severity of 
this vulnerability is far more differnet. A simple <a href> tag bypasses the AVAST Sandbox and drops a locall CMD shell on the 
system where AVAST is installed. You can technically access any file / application, execute it. It seems like We can control explorer.exe and 
through that we are even able to browse local folders and access any file, we can even browse 

AVAST Antivirus v8.0.1489 - Multiple Core Vulnerabilities

Details:
========
It has been discovered that the lastest build of Avast Free Antivirus Version 8 is vulnerable to HTML code injection 
which eventually leads to local command / shell execution. During the testing, I was able to succesfully bypass the 
AVAST Sandbox and read/load and execute any file/application from local system having the local admin priviledges 
which makes this bug alot more critical.

Local Privilege Escalation Vulnerabilities in Lotus Notes Client

Local Privilege Escalation Through Default ntmulti.exe File Permissions

Unprivileged users can execute arbitrary programs that run with the privileges of the LocalSystem account by replacing the Multi-user Cleanup Service executable with arbitrary executables. This vulnerability exists because the default file permissions assigned during installation to ntmulti.exe (the executable for the Multi-user Cleanup Service) allow unprivileged, interactive
users to replace ntmulti.exe with any file.

Because the Multi-user Cleanup Service is a Windows service running with LocalSystem privileges, unprivileged users can easily elevate their privileges.



Multiple MicroWorld products insecure directory permissions

All mentioned binaries are running under NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM account. 
Replacing any of those programs with appropriate (i.e. cmd.exe) will 
spawn process with Local System privileges on next reboot. Because 
setup/installation procedure sets insecure default permissions 
(Everyone:Full Control) on eScan/MailScan/X-Spam installation directory 
any LUA user can perform this task. NOTE: some binaries won't spawn 
visible windows.

Hi @ll,

versions of Microsoft Security Essentials before the current

NGS00051 Technical Advisory: Cisco VPN Client Privilege Escalation

The 64 Bit Cisco VPN Client for Windows 7 is affected by a local privilege escalation vulnerability that allows non-privileged users to gain administrative privileges.

=================
Technical Details
=================
Unprivileged users can execute arbitrary programs that run with the privileges of the LocalSystem account by replacing the Cisco VPN Service executable with arbitrary executables. This vulnerability exists because the default file permissions assigned during installation to cvpnd.exe (the executable for the Cisco VPN Service) allow unprivileged, interactive users to replace cvpnd.exe with any file.

Because the Cisco VPN Service is a Windows service running with LocalSystem privileges, unprivileged users can easily elevate their privileges.

It is possible to work around this vulnerability without a software upgrade.


ZDI-11-351 : WellinTech KingView HistoryServer.exe Opcode 3 Parsing Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

service allocates memory from the heap based on the 10th and 11th bytes
of the packet (element count). Packet data is then copied into the
allocated buffer based on the first two bytes of the packet (packet
size). These values can be manipulated to create a heap overflow and and
attacker can exploit this to remotely execute arbitrary code in the
context of the service (Local System).

- -- Vendor Response:

WellinTech has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More
details can be found at:

Airscanner Mobile Security Advisory #07122001: Eye-Fi Multiple Vulnerabilities

These will work as long as the Eye-Fi service is running, which it is by 
default. These are all possible because the service communicates with the 
browser via requests to http://localhost:59278.
-CSRF to enable/disable Autostart
-CSRF to enable/disable file upload
-CSRF to change location of file download (default is local system) to remote location via SMB
-CSRF to crash the Eye-Fi service
-CSRF to reconfigure the Eye-Fi card

Updated packages have been released that fully address the vulnerability.
For reference the original advisory follows.

Chris Howells discovered that policyd-weight, a policy daemon for the Postfix
mail transport agent, created its socket in an insecure way, which may be
exploited to overwrite or remove arbitary files from the local system.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
0.1.14-beta-6etch2.

The old stable distribution (sarge) does not contain a policyd-weight package.

AVAST Universal Core Installer - Multiple Vulnerabilities

Details:

It has been discovered that the Core avast installer application is vulnerable to persistent code injection and local 
command path injection vulnerability. During the testing, I was able to succesfully read/load and execute any file/application 
from local system having the local admin priviledges which makes this bug alot more interesting. 

Initially the bug was an HTML code injection flaw only however, with more indepth analysis, it was revealed that the severity 
of this vulnerability is far more differnt. A simple <a href> tag bypasses the AVAST Sandbox and drops a locall CMD shell on 
the system where AVAST is installed. You can technically access any file / application, execute it. It seems like We can control

2) PHP File Inclusion in Exponent CMS: CVE-2013-3295

The vulnerability is caused by improper filtration of user-supplied input passed via the "page" HTTP GET parameter to "/install/popup.php" script, which is publicly accessible after CMS installation by default. A remote unauthenticated attacker can include arbitrary PHP files from the local system using directory traversal sequences with URL-encoded NULL byte, read arbitrary files or execute arbitrary PHP code on the target system. 

The PoC code below will output the content of '/etc/passwd' file on vulnerable system:
