Tool Available for "OffloadModExpo Registry Permissions" Vulnerability


Originally Posted: April 12, 2000

Summary
=======
Microsoft has released a tool that installs tighter permissions on a
Windows NT(r) 4.0 registry key. The default permissions  could allow a
malicious user who can interactively log onto a Windows NT 4.0 machine
to compromise the cryptographic keys of  other users who subsequently
log onto the same machine.

patch can be found at

Issue
=====
This vulnerability involves a registry key used by the CryptoAPI Base
CSPs to specify the driver DLL for a hardware  accelerator. By design,
such a DLL would have access to users' public and private keys.
Although only administrators should  have permission to add such a
DLL, the permissions on the key actually would allow any user who
could interactively log onto  the machine to do so. By writing a bogus
DLL and installing it, a malicious user could compromise the keys of
other users who  subsequently used the machine.

The machines primarily at risk would be workstations and terminal
servers. If normal security recommendations are followed,  normal
users will not be allowed to interactively log onto domain
controllers, web servers, database servers, ERP servers,  and other
security-critical machines. Windows NT auditing could be used to
determine who changed the key's value. A tool is  available that
resets the permissions on the affected key to the correct default
values. In addition, it incorporates the  functionality of the tool
provided in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS00-008.
