Microsoft Azure Site Recovery Privilege Escalation

High

Synopsis

The Microsoft Azure Site Recovery suite contains a DLL hijacking flaw that allows for privilege escalation from any low privileged user to SYSTEM. 

Incorrect permissions on the service’s executable directory (E:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Azure Site Recovery\home\svsystems\transport\) allow new files to be created by any user. The service launched from this directory runs automatically and with SYSTEM privileges and attempts to load several DLLs from this directory. This allows for a DLL hijacking/planting attack via several libraries that are attempted to be loaded from this location when the service is launched.

Solution

New deployments of the Site Recovery utilities should not require any additional actions by end users.

Existing deployments should ensure that the Microsoft-supplied patches have been appropriately applied. In the event that these patches are unable to be applied in a timely manner, users may manually apply permissions to the affected directories as appropriate for their environment – though we still recommend applying the official patches as soon as possible.
