Rapid7 AppSpider 6.12 Web Application Vulnerability Scanner Elevation Of Privilege Vendor: Rapid7, Inc. Product web page: https://www.rapid7.com Affected version: 6.12.10.1 Summary: While today's malicious attackers pursue a variety of goals, they share a preferred channel of attack - the millions of custom web, mobile, and cloud applications companies deploy to serve their customers. AppSpider dynamically scans these applications for vulnerabilities across all modern technologies, provides tools that speed remediation, and monitors applications for changes. Desc: The application suffers from an unquoted search path issue impacting the services 'AppSpider REST Server', 'AppSpider REST Service' and 'AppSpiderUpgradeService' for Windows deployed as part of AppSpider solution. This could potentially allow an authorized but non-privileged local user to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges on the system. A successful attempt would require the local user to be able to insert their code in the system root path undetected by the OS or other security applications where it could potentially be executed during application startup or reboot. If successful, the local user’s code would execute with the elevated privileges of the application.
