Microsoft Security Bulletin MS13-076 - Important

Vulnerabilities in Kernel-Mode Drivers Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (2876315)

Published: September 10, 2013

Version: 1.0

General Information

Executive Summary

This security update resolves seven privately reported vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerabilities could allow elevation of privilege if an attacker logs on to the system and runs a specially crafted application. An attacker must have valid logon credentials and be able to log on locally to exploit these vulnerabilities.

This security update is rated Important for all supported releases of Microsoft Windows. For more information, see the subsection, Affected and Non-Affected Software, in this section.

The security update addresses the vulnerabilities by correcting the way that the Windows kernel-mode driver handles objects in memory. For more information about the vulnerabilities, see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) subsection for the specific vulnerability entry under the next section, Vulnerability Information.

Recommendation. 

Most customers have automatic updating enabled and will not need to take any action because this security update will be downloaded and installed automatically. Customers who have not enabled automatic updating need to check for updates and install this update manually. For information about specific configuration options in automatic updating, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 294871.

For administrators and enterprise installations, or end users who want to install this security update manually Microsoft recommends that customers apply the update at the earliest opportunity using update management software, or by checking for updates using the Microsoft Update service.

Elevation of privilege vulnerabilities exist when the Windows kernel-mode driver improperly handles objects in memory. An attacker who successfully exploited these vulnerabilities could gain elevated privileges and read arbitrary amounts of kernel memory.

To view these vulnerabilities as standard entries in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures list, see the following:

Vulnerability titleCVE number
Win32k Multiple Fetch Vulnerability CVE-2013-1341
Win32k Multiple Fetch Vulnerability CVE-2013-1342
Win32k Multiple Fetch Vulnerability CVE-2013-1343
Win32k Multiple Fetch Vulnerability CVE-2013-1344
Win32k Multiple Fetch Vulnerability CVE-2013-3864
Win32k Multiple Fetch Vulnerability CVE-2013-3865

Mitigating Factors

Mitigation refers to a setting, common configuration, or general best-practice, existing in a default state, that could reduce the severity of exploitation of a vulnerability. The following mitigating factors may be helpful in your situation:

  • An attacker must have valid logon credentials and be able to log on locally to exploit these vulnerabilities.

Workarounds

Microsoft has not identified any workarounds for these vulnerabilities.

FAQ

What is the scope of the vulnerabilities ? 
These are elevation of privilege vulnerabilities.

What causes the vulnerabilities ? 
The vulnerabilities are caused when the Windows kernel-mode driver improperly handles objects in memory.

What is the Windows kernel-mode driver (win32k.sys)? 
Win32k.sys is a kernel-mode device driver and is the kernel part of the Windows subsystem. It contains the window manager, which controls window displays; manages screen output; collects input from the keyboard, mouse, and other devices; and passes user messages to applications. It also contains the Graphics Device Interface (GDI), which is a library of functions for graphics output devices. Finally, it serves as a wrapper for DirectX support that is implemented in another driver (dxgkrnl.sys).

What is the Windows kernel? 
The Windows kernel is the core of the operating system. It provides system-level services such as device management and memory management, allocates processor time to processes, and manages error handling.

What might a n attacker use the vulnerabilities to do? 
An attacker who successfully exploited these vulnerabilities could run arbitrary code in kernel mode. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full administrative rights.

How could an attacker exploit the vulnerabilities ? 
To exploit these vulnerabilities, an attacker would first have to log on to the system. An attacker could then run a specially crafted application designed to elevate privileges.

What systems are primaril y at risk from the vulnerabilities ? 
Workstations and terminal servers are primarily at risk. Servers could be at more risk if administrators allow users to log on to servers and to run programs. However, best practices strongly discourage allowing this.

What does the update do? 
The update addresses the vulnerabilities by correcting the way that the Windows kernel-mode driver handles objects in memory.

When this security bulletin was issued, had this vulnerability been publicly disclosed? 
No. Microsoft received information about these vulnerabilities through coordinated vulnerability disclosure.

When this security bulletin was issued, had Microsoft received any reports that this vulnerability was being exploited? 
No. Microsoft had not received any information to indicate that these vulnerabilities had been publicly used to attack customers when this security bulletin was originally issued.

An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when the Windows kernel-mode driver improperly handles objects in memory. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain elevated privileges and read arbitrary amounts of kernel memory.

What is the Windows kernel? 
The Windows kernel is the core of the operating system. It provides system-level services such as device management and memory management, allocates processor time to processes, and manages error handling.

What might an attacker use the vulnerability to do? 
In Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2, an attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could run arbitrary code in kernel mode. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full administrative rights.

In Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, an attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could cause the target system to stop responding.

How could an atta cker exploit the vulnerability ? 
To exploit the vulnerability, an attacker would first have to log on to the system. An attacker could then run a specially crafted application designed to elevate privileges.

What systems are primarily at risk from the vulnerability ? 
Workstations and terminal servers are primarily at risk. Servers could be at more risk if administrators allow users to log on to servers and to run programs. However, best practices strongly discourage allowing this.

Update Information

Several resources are available to help administrators deploy security updates. 

  • Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) lets administrators scan local and remote systems for missing security updates and common security misconfigurations. 
  • Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), Systems Management Server (SMS), and System Center Configuration Manager help administrators distribute security updates. 
  • The Update Compatibility Evaluator components included with Application Compatibility Toolkit aid in streamlining the testing and validation of Windows updates against installed applications.
