# Exploit Title: WinSMS 3.43 Local Privilege Escalation # Date: 13/09/2016 # Exploit Author: Tulpa # Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org # Author website: www.tulpa-security.com # Vendor Homepage: http://www.winsms.co.za # Software Link: https://www.winsms.co.za/products/bulk-sms-desktop-software/ # Version: Software Version 3.43, Released September 2015 # Tested on: Windows 10 Professional x64 and Windows XP SP3 x86 1. Description: WinSMS installs by default to "C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSMS" with very weak folder permissions granting any user full permission to the contents of the directory and it's subfolders. This allows ample opportunity for code execution against any other user running the application. WinSMS is typically configured as a startup program which makes this particularly easy to take leverage. 2.
