Circutor PowerStudio SCADA 4.0.5 Privilege Escalation

Circutor PowerStudio SCADA 4.0.5 Privilege Escalation
Posted Dec 7, 2015
Authored by LiquidWorm | Site zeroscience.mk

Circutor PowerStudio SCADA version 4.0.5 suffers from an unquoted search path issue impacting the services 'CircutorPowerStudioScadaServer' and 'CircutorPowerStudioServer' for Windows deployed as part of PowerStudio Series. This could potentially allow an authorized but non-privileged local user to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges on the system. A successful attempt would require the local user to be able to insert their code in the system root path undetected by the OS or other security applications where it could potentially be executed during application startup or reboot. If successful, the local user's code would execute with the elevated privileges of the application.
