Telefonica O2 Connection Manager 8.7 Service Trusted Path Privilege Escalation


Vendor: Telefonica S.A.
Product web page: http://www.telefonica.com | http://www.o2.co.uk
Affected version: 8.7.6.792

Summary: O2 Connection Manager will help you to manage your internet
connections by getting you connected to the fastest available network.
Automatically connect you to the fastest available network including
your home broadband if you have a wireless router.

Desc: The O2 Connection Manager's service suffers from an unquoted
search path issue impacting the Import WiFi 'TGCM_ImportWiFiSvc'
service for Windows. This could potentially allow an authorized but
non-privileged local user to execute arbitrary code with elevated
privileges on the system. A successful attempt would require the
local user to be able to insert their code in the system root path
undetected by the OS or other security applications where it could
potentially be executed during application startup or reboot. If
successful, the local user’s code would execute with the elevated
privileges of the application. 

Tested on: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 (EN)
           Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (EN)
