Exploits/Local

Microsoft Windows CoreShellComServerRegistrar Open Process Local Privilege Escalation Exploit

An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when Windows Core Shell COM Server Registrar improperly handles COM calls. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could potentially set certain items to run at a higher level and thereby elevate permissions. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would first have to log on to the system. An attacker could then run a specially crafted application that could exploit the vulnerability and take control of an affected system. The update addresses this vulnerability by correcting unprotected COM calls.

Windows Error Reporting Manager Arbitrary File Move Elevation of Privilege Exploit (CVE-2019-1315)

An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when Windows Error Reporting manager improperly handles hard links. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could overwrite a targeted file leading to an elevated status. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would first have to log on to the system. An attacker could then run a specially crafted application that could exploit the vulnerability and take control of an affected system. The security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how Windows Error Reporting manager handles hard links.

MSI Afterburner RTCore64 Privilege Escalation Exploit

The driver in Micro-Star MSI Afterburner 4.6.2.15658 (aka RTCore64.sys and RTCore32.sys) allows any authenticated user to read and write to arbitrary memory, I/O ports, and MSRs.

Microsoft Windows Win32k xxxMNFindWindowFromPoint Vulnerability Exploit

An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in Windows when the Win32k component fails to properly handle objects in memory. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could run arbitrary code in kernel mode. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.

Microsoft Windows Win32k Keyboard Layout Vulnerability Exploit (MS10-073) Update 3

This update adds support to Impact Professional 11.0i This module exploits a vulnerability on "win32k.sys" when a keyboard layout is loaded by the kernel.

Linux PTRACE_TRACEME Local Privilege Escalation Exploit

In the Linux kernel before 5.1.17, ptrace_link in kernel/ptrace.c mishandles the recording of the credentials of a process that wants to create a ptrace relationship, which allows local users to obtain root access by leveraging certain scenarios with a parent-child process relationship, where a parent drops privileges and calls execve (potentially allowing control by an attacker).

Viper RGB Driver Kernel Arbitrary Read Write Local Privilege Escalation Exploit

The MsIo64.sys and MsIo32.sys drivers in Patriot Viper RGB allow local users (including low integrity processes) to read and write to arbitrary memory locations, and consequently gain NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM privileges, by mapping \Device\PhysicalMemory into the calling process via ZwOpenSection and ZwMapViewOfSection.

Microsoft Windows UPnP Device Host Local Privilege Escalation Exploit

This module exploits two vulnerabilities (CVE-2019-1405 & CVE-2019-1322) in order to get SYSTEM privileges. The first one "UPnP Device Host" allows us to get SERVICE privileges. The second one "Update Orchestrator Service" allows us to escalate from SERVICE to SYSTEM.

Private Internet Access VPN Malicious OpenSSL Engine Privilege Escalation Exploit

During startup the PIA Windows service(pia-service.exe) loads the OpenSSL library from C:\Program Files\Private Internet Access\libeay32.dll. This library attempts to load the C:\etc\ssl\openssl.cnf configuration file. By default on Windows systems, authenticated users can create directories under C:\. A low privileged user can create a openssl.cnf configuration file to load a malicious OpenSSL engine library resulting in the arbitrary code execution as SYSTEM when the service starts.
