Affected Version:
=============
Version (<=3.2)

Exploitation-Technique:
===================
Local

Severity Rating:
===================
CVSS Base Score 7.2 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)

Details:
=======
There is a Hidden option and Access Control vulnerability in Ammyy Admin tool which allows an attacker to utilize "Ammyy Admin tool" as a trojan horse to access computer without victim's information.
An approach to have hidden option "-nogui" along with storing "client ID" at fixed memory location could be exploited by an attacker to use "Ammyy Admin" as a trojan horse.

Proof Of Concept:
================
An attacker could exploit above vulnerabilities using following steps,

1) Create custom settings.rdp and settings3.bin to allow access to any "computer ID" with predefined password.
2) Use hidden option "-nogui" to run "Ammyy Amin" without the user information.
2) Acquire the client id by reading memory location "004A3658".
3) Send client id to attackers C&C server.

The information provided in this advisory is provided as it is without any warranty. Any modified copy or reproduction, including partially usages, of this file requires authorization from Cyberoam Threat Research Labs. Permission to electronically redistribute this alert in its unmodified form is granted. All other rights, including the use of other media, are reserved by Cyberoam Threat Research Labs.

The first attempt at contact will be through any appropriate contacts or formal mechanisms listed on the vendor Web site, or by sending an e-mail with the pertinent information about the vulnerability. Simultaneous with the vendor being notified, Cyberoam may distribute vulnerability protection filters to its customers' IPS devices through the IPS upgrades.
If a vendor fails to respond after five business days, Cyberoam Threat Research Labs may issue a public advisory disclosing its findings fifteen business days after the initial contact.

If a vendor response is received within the timeframe outlined above, Cyberoam Threat Research Labs will allow the vendor 6-months to address the vulnerability with a patch. At the end of the deadline if a vendor is not responsive or unable to provide a reasonable statement as to why the vulnerability is not fixed, the Cyberoam Threat Research Labs will publish a limited advisory to enable the defensive community to protect the user. We believe that by doing so the vendor will understand the responsibility they have to their customers and will react appropriately.
Cyberoam Threat Research Labs will make every effort to work with vendors to ensure they understand the technical details and severity of a reported security flaw. If a product vendor is unable to, or chooses not to, patch a particular security flaw, Cyberoam Threat Research Labs will offer to work with that vendor to publicly disclose the flaw with some effective workarounds.
Before public disclosure of a vulnerability, Cyberoam Threat Research Labs may share technical details of the vulnerability with other security vendors who are in a position to provide a protective response to a broader user base.
