# Exploit Title      : Seqrite End Point Security v7.4 - Weak Folder Permissions Privilege Escalation
# Date : 09/13/2018
# Exploit Author : Hashim Jawad - @ihack4falafel
# Vendor Homepage : https://www.seqrite.com/
# Tested on : Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 (x64)

Description:
============
Seqrite End Point Security v7.4 installs by default to "C:\Program Files\Seqrite\Seqrite" with very weak folder permissions granting any user full permission "Everyone: (F)" to the contents of the directory and it's subfolders. In addition, the program installs handful of services with binaries within the program folder that run as "LocalSystem". Given the "Self Protection" feature (on by default) is disabled which can be done in number of ways (for instance, if the policy does not enforce EPS client password to change the settings any user can disable that feature), meaning a non-privileged user would be able to elevate privileges to "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM".
