Kaspersky Anti-Virus Privilege Escalation

Kaspersky Anti-Virus Privilege Escalation


Kaspersky Products are prone to a local privilege escalation.
Unprivileged users can exploit this flaw in order to execute arbitrary
code with Kernel privileges.

Kaspersky implements its NDIS-TDI Hooking Engine using two drivers,
which rely on an internal system of plugins. Plugin registering is
performed using a privileged IOCTL. The security descriptor for both
Devices is insecure so any user can take advantage of this =93hidden=94 feature.
