Kerio Personal Firewall iphlpapi.dll privilege escalation
|kerio-iphlpapi-privilege-escalation (31232)||High Risk|
Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall (SKPF) could allow a local attacker to execute arbitrary code and gain elevated privileges on the system, caused by improper permissions in the installation directory. By creating a specially-crafted iphlpapi.dll file in the installation directory, a local attacker could execute arbitrary code with privileges of the SKPF service when the application is initialized. This could allow the attacker to bypass all security restrictions and gain complete control of the system.
No remedy available as of August 1, 2014.
