Adobe Reader and Acrobat getPlus_HelperSvc.exe) local elevation of privileges

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:5719

NOS Microsystems getPlus Download Manager as used in Adobe Reader 1.6.2.36 and possibly other versions Corel getPlus Download Manager before 1.5.0.48 and possibly other products installs NOS\bin\getPlus_HelperSvc.exe with insecure permissions (Everyone:Full Control) which allows local users to gain SYSTEM privileges by replacing getPlus_HelperSvc.exe with a Trojan horse program as demonstrated by use of getPlus Download Manager within Adobe Reader. NOTE: within Adobe Reader the scope of this issue is limited because the program is deleted and the associated service is not automatically launched after a successful installation and reboot.
