Proxifier For Mac 2.19 Local Privilege Escalation

Change Mirror Download
# With CVE-2017-7643 I disclosed a command injection vulnerablity in the KLoader
# binary that ships with Proxifier <= 2.18.
#
# Unfortunately 2.19 is also vulnerable to a slightly different attack that
# yields the same result.
#
# When Proxifier is first run, if the KLoader binary is not suid root it gets
# executed as root by Proxifier.app (the user is prompted to enter an admin
# password). The KLoader binary will then make itself suid root so that it
# doesn't need to prompt the user again.
#
# The Proxifier developers added parameter sanitisation and kext signature
# verification to the KLoader binary as a fix for CVE-2017-7643 but Proxifier.app
# does no verification of the KLoader binary that gets executed as root.
#
# The directory KLoader sits in is not root-owned so we can replace it with
# our own binary that will get executed as root when Proxifier starts.
#
# To avoid raising any suspicion, as soon we get executed as root we can swap
# the real KLoader binary back into place and forward the execution call on
# to it. It does require the user to re-enter their credentials the next time
# Proxifier is run but it's likely most users wouldn't think anything of this.
#
# Users should upgrade to version 2.19.2.
