Vigil@nce: Windows, code execution via Workstation Service

August 2009 by Vigil@nce

SYNTHESIS OF THE VULNERABILITY

An authenticated attacker can generate a double memory free in Workstation Service in order to elevate his privileges.

Severity: 2/4

Consequences: administrator access/rights

Provenance: user shell

Means of attack: no proof of concept, no attack

Ability of attacker: expert (4/4)

Confidence: confirmed by the editor (5/5)

Diffusion of the vulnerable configuration: high (3/3)

Creation date: 12/08/2009

IMPACTED PRODUCTS

- Microsoft Windows 2003
- Microsoft Windows 2008
- Microsoft Windows Vista
- Microsoft Windows XP

DESCRIPTION OF THE VULNERABILITY

The Workstation Service is enabled by default, and provides access to shared resources.

An authenticated attacker can send a malicious RPC NetrGetJoinInformation message to the service, in order to force it to free a memory area twice. This error corrupts the memory, and leads to code execution with system privileges.

A local attacker can thus elevate his privileges.
