Subject: Re: [FD] CVE-2018-4863 Sophos Endpoint Protection v10.7 / Tamper
 Protection Bypass

The affected key under HKLM is writable by regular users? A Get-ACL[1]
output would be appreciated!

And why do you put a batch script inside C code? o.O

> CVE Reference:
> ==============
> CVE-2018-4863
>
>
> Security Issue:
> ================
> Sophos Endpoint Protection offers an enhanced tamper protection mechanism
> disallowing changes to be made to the Windows registry
> by creating and setting a special registry key "SEDEnabled" as follows:
>
> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Sophos Endpoint
> Defense\TamperProtection\Config
> Create the following registry key:
> "SEDEnabled"=dword:00000001"
>
> From "https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/124376" documentation:
> "You must enable the basic Tamper Protection feature on an endpoint in
> order to use the Enhanced Tamper Protection"
>
> However, this protection mechanism can be bypassed by deleting the
> following registry key as it is not sufficiently protected.
> "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\services\\Sophos Endpoint
> Defense\"
>
> By deleting this key this bypasses the Sophos Endpoint "Enhanced Tamper
> Protection" once the system has been rebooted.
> Attackers can then create arbitrary registry keys or edit keys and settings
> under the protected "tamper" protection config key.
> The issue undermines the integrity of the endpoint protection as deleting
> this key stops the tamper protect driver from loading.
>
>
> SAV OPM customers are unaffected from 10.8.1 onwards, all Central managed
> customers customers are unaffected.
> All SAV OPM Preview subscribers have had the fix since 2018-03-01.

> Exploit/POC:
