Local Privilege Escalation


hello,

we've found local privilege escalation in Symantec LiveState agent.

PoC:

1. kill shstart.exe process

Wouldn't you have to be administrator to kill shstart.exe?


2. from symantec livestate agent icon in systray choose "Web
Self-Service"
3. New browser window will open, it is running with SYSTEM privileges.

tested on fully patched Win XP SP2, Symantec LiveState agent 7.1
