1Password 4.6.1.619 DLL Hijacking

Change Mirror Download
Hi @ll,

1Password-4.6.1.619.exe, available from
<https://d13itkw33a7sus.cloudfront.net/dist/1P/win4/1Password-4.6.1.619.exe>
is vulnerable to DLL hijacking: it loads UXTheme.dll or DWMAPI.dll
from its "application directory" instead Windows
"system directory".

For downloaded applications like 1Password-4.6.1.619.exe the
"application directory" is Windows' "Downloads" folder.

See <http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2015/Nov/101> and
<http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2015/Dec/86> plus

<http://blogs.technet.com/b/srd/archive/2014/05/13/load-library-safely.aspx>
for more information.

See <https://cwe.mitre.org/data/definitions/426.html>,

<https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff919712.aspx> and
<https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms682586.aspx> for this
well-known beginner's error.


If one of the DLLs named above is placed in the users "Downloads"
directory (for example per "drive-by download") this vulnerability
becomes a remote code execution.

JFTR: there is ABSOLUTELY no need for executable installers on
Windows! DUMP THIS CRAP!


Additionally the installer creates an unsafe temporary directory
"%TEMP%\is-*.tmp\" where it extracts some parts of itself and
executes them.

See <https://cwe.mitre.org/data/definitions/377.html>
and <https://cwe.mitre.org/data/definitions/379.html> for this
well-known beginner's error.


Mitigations:
~~~~~~~~~~~~

* Don't use executable installers! NEVER!
Don't use self-extractors! NEVER!

See <http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2015/Nov/101> and
<http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2015/Dec/86> plus
<http://home.arcor.de/skanthak/!execute.html> alias
<https://skanthak.homepage.t-online.de/!execute.html> for more
information.

* Add an ACE "(D;OIIO;WP;;;WD)" to the ACL of every "%USERPROFILE%";
use <https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa374928.aspx> to
decode it to "deny execution of files in this directory for
everyone, inheritable to all files in all subdirectories".

* Use SAFER alias Software Restriction Policies or AppLocker to
enforce W^X alias "write Xor execute" in the NTFS file system:
allow execution only below %SystemRoot% and %ProgramFiles% and
deny it everywhere else.

stay tuned (and far away from such crap)

"WON'T FIX: this does not attack 1Password data but
the target system itself, and is an issue with low
risk, an issue that has existing mitigations in place,
or is an accepted business risk for the customer."
