Subject: [FD] Trojan.Win32.Pincav.cmfl / Insecure Permissions

Discovery / credits: Malvuln - (c) 2021
Original source:

Threat: Trojan.Win32.Pincav.cmfl
Vulnerability: Insecure Permissions
Description: The trojan creates an insecure dir named "Windupdt" under c:\
drive, granting change (C) permissions to authenticated users group.
Standard users can rename the malware and reboot to disable it or replace
it with their own executable to escalate privileges when a privileged user
logs on. The malware also creates registry key under
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run for
persistence. To successfully rename the malware we have to call Windows
"attrib -h" command to unhide the executable or the rename will fail.
Type: PE32
MD5: 9d296ebd6b4f79457fcc61e38dcce61e
Vuln ID: MVID-2021-0104
Dropped files: winupdate.exe
