Kaspersky Labs Anti-Virus IOCTL Local Privilege Escalation

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains an application that is prone to a
local privilege escalation issue.

Description :

The version of Kaspersky Anti-Virus installed on the remote host allows
a local attacker to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges by
passing a specially crafted Irp structure to an IOCTL handler used by
the KLIN and KLICK device drivers. By leveraging this flaw, a local
attacker may be able to gain complete control of the affected system.
