# Exploit Title: Spoofer 1.4.6  Local Privilege Escalation via Unquoted Service Path 
# Date: 24/01/2022 
# Exploit Author: Asim Sattar (@M_Asim_1) 
# Vendor Homepage: https://www.caida.org/projects/spoofer/ 
# Software Link: https://www.caida.org/projects/spoofer/downloads/Spoofer-1.4.6-win32.exe
# Version: 1.4.6 
# Tested: Windows 10 (x64) 
# CVE: CVE-2021-46443



Description:

-------------



Caida Spoofer 1.4.6 installs a service (spoofer-scheduler) with an unquoted
service path. Since this service is running as SYSTEM, this creates a local
privilege escalation vulnerability. To properly exploit this vulnerability,
a local attacker can insert an executable in the path of the service.
Rebooting the system or restarting the service will run the malicious
executable with elevated privileges.
