GEOVAP Reliance 4 Control Server Unquoted Service Path Elevation Of Privilege  
  
  
Vendor: GEOVAP, spol. s r.o.  
Product web page: http://www.geovap.cz  
http://www.reliance.cz  
http://www.reliance-scada.com  
Affected version: 4.7.1 (Revision 25172)  
  
Summary: Reliance is a professional SCADA/HMI system designed for the  
visualization and control of industrial processes and for building automation.  
  
Desc: The application suffers from an unquoted search path issue impacting the  
service 'RelianceOpcDaWrapper' for Windows deployed as part of Reliance 4 SCADA/HMI  
system installer including Reliance OPC Server. 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.  
  
Tested on: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 (EN)  
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (EN)
