Severity Rating (CVSS):

Details:  
=======  
A remote code execution vulnerability exists in ManageEngine ADSelfService  
Plus Software when it does not properly enforce user privileges associated  
with Windows Certificate Dialog.  
  
This vulnerability could allow an unauthenticated attacker to remotely  
execute commands with system level privileges on target windows host. An  
attacker does not require any privilege on the target system in order to  
exploit this vulnerability.  
  
ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus thick client enables a user to perform  
self-service like password reset, self-service account unlock, etc by using  
self-service option on windows login screen.  
  
Upon selecting this option, ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus thick client  
software will be launched which will connect to a remote ADSelfServicePlus  
server to facilitate the self-service operations.  
  
A security alert can/will be triggered when “an unauthenticated attacker  
having physical access to the host issues a self-signed SSL certificate to  
the client”. Or, “a (default) self-signed SSL certificate is configured on  
ADSelfService Plus server”.  
  
“View Certificate” option from the security alert will allow an attacker  
with physical access or a remote attacker with RDP access, to export a  
displayed certificate to a file. This will further cascade to the standard  
dialog/wizard which will open file explorer as SYSTEM.  
  
By navigating file explorer through “C:\windows\system32\”, a cmd.exe can  
be launched as a SYSTEM.
