The lands were originally auctioned off and approved to do so by the Ecuadorian government, much to the dismay of the indigenous tribe.A court decision ruled that the 2,000 strong tribe had not been properly consulted before the lands were sold off.

The intriguing part of this story is that the escalation flaw is very similar to the one that we saw last week with Trend Micro 's Password Manager. In the case of the BitDefender, we have the execution of the Windows service ”NT AUTHORITY SYSTEM ” which enables the software to access the system with powerful permissions, which is the same basis as with Trend Micro 's product. Next, an attacker could use an unsigned arbitrary DLL and load it into multiple services to run as ”NT AUTHORITY SYSTEM ”, leading to privilege escalation and high persistence exploitation scenarios. To make things even worse, whatever unsigned code is set to run is not passed through the CIG (Code Integrity Guard) mechanism.SafeBreach demonstrated a proof of concept (PoC) code by using a Python script to write files onto the Access Control List (ACL) after fiddling with the non admin writing permissions to the target directory as required. This same directory must be added onto the system 's PATH variable, in the same way, that the exploitation with Trend Micro password manager worked. The DLL that is decoyed is ”ServiceInstance.dll ”, which is parsed upon system boot without any digital certificate validation against the binary.
