Microsoft Windows NT #GP Trap Handler Allows Users to Switch Kernel Stack


In order to support BIOS service routines in legacy 16bit applications, the
Windows NT Kernel supports the concept of BIOS calls in the Virtual-8086 mode
monitor code. These are implemented in two stages, the kernel transitions to
the second stage when the #GP trap handler (nt!KiTrap0D) detects that the
faulting cs:eip matches specific magic values.

Transitioning to the second stage involves restoring execution context and
call stack (which had been previously saved) from the faulting trap frame once
authenticity has been verified.

This verification relies on the following incorrect assumptions:

  - Setting up a VDM context requires SeTcbPrivilege.
  - ring3 code cannot install arbitrary code segment selectors.
  - ring3 code cannot forge a trap frame.

This is believed to affect every release of the Windows NT kernel, from
Windows NT 3.1 (1993) up to and including Windows 7 (2009).

Working out the details of the attack is left as an exercise for the reader.

Just kidding, that was an homage to Derek Soeder :-)

- Assumption 0: Setting up a VDM context requires SeTcbPrivilege.

Creating a VDM context requires EPROCESS->Flags.VdmAllowed to be set in order
to access the authenticated system service, NtVdmControl(). VdmAllowed can
only be set using NtSetInformationProcess(), which verifies the caller has
SeTcbPrivilege. If this is true, the caller is very privileged and can
certainly be trusted.

This restriction can be subverted by requesting the NTVDM subsystem, and then
using CreateRemoteThread() to execute in the context of the subsystem process,
which will already have this flag set.

- Assumption 1: ring3 code cannot install arbitrary code segment selectors.

Cpl is usually equal to the two least significant bits of cs and ss, and is
a simple way to calculate the privilege of a task. However, there is an
exception, Virtual-8086 mode.

Real mode uses a segmented addressing scheme in order to allow 16-bit
addresses to access the 20-bit address space. This is achieved by forming
physical addresses from a calculation like (cs << 4) + (eip & 0xffff). The
same calculation is used to map the segmented real address space onto the
protected linear address space in Virtual-8086 mode. Therefore, I must be
permitted to set cs to any value, and checks for disallowed or privileged
selectors can be bypassed (PsSetLdtEnties will reject any selector where any
of the three lower bits are unset, as is the case with the required cs pair).

- Assumption 2: ring3 code cannot forge a trap frame.

Returning to usermode with iret is a complicated operation, the pseudocode for
the iret instruction alone spans several pages of Intel's Software Developers
Manual. The operation occurs in two stages, a pre-commit stage and a
post-commit stage. Using the VdmContext installed using NtVdmControl(), an
invalid context can be created that causes iret to fail pre-commit, thus
forging a trap frame.

The final requirement involves predicting the address of the second-stage BIOS
call handler. The address is static in Windows 2003, XP and earlier operating
systems, however, Microsoft introduced kernel base randomisation in Windows
Vista. Unfortunately, this potentially useful exploit mitigation is trivial
to defeat locally as unprivileged users can simply query the loaded module list
via NtQuerySystemInformation().

Affected Software

All 32bit x86 versions of Windows NT released since 27-Jul-1993 are believed to
be affected, including but not limited to the following actively supported

    - Windows 2000
    - Windows XP
    - Windows Server 2003
    - Windows Vista
    - Windows Server 2008
    - Windows 7


Upon successful exploitation, the kernel stack is switched to an attacker
specified address.

An attacker would trigger the vulnerability by setting up a specially
formed VDM_TIB in their TEB, using a code sequence like this:

/* ... */
    // Magic CS required for exploitation
    Tib.VdmContext.SegCs = 0x0B;
    // Pointer to fake kernel stack
    Tib.VdmContext.Esi = &KernelStack;
    // Magic IP required for exploitation
    Tib.VdmContext.Eip = Ki386BiosCallReturnAddress;

    NtCurrentTeb()->Reserved4[0] = &Tib;
/* ... */

Followed by

/* ... */
    NtVdmControl(VdmStartExecution, NULL);
/* ... */

Which will reach the following code sequence via the #GP trap handler,
nt!KiTrap0D. Please note how the stack pointer is restored from the saved
(untrusted) trap frame at 43C3E6, undoubtedly resulting in the condition
described above.

Possibly naive example code for triggering this condition is availble from the
link below.


The code has been tested on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003/2008, Windows Vista
and Windows 7. Support for other affected operating systems is left as an
exercise for the interested reader.


If you believe you may be affected, you should consider applying the workaround
described below.

Temporarily disabling the MSDOS and WOWEXEC subsystems will prevent the attack
from functioning, as without a process with VdmAllowed, it is not possible to
access NtVdmControl() (without SeTcbPrivilege, of course).

The policy template "Windows Components\Application Compatibility\Prevent
access to 16-bit applications" may be used within the group policy editor to
prevent unprivileged users from executing 16-bit applications. I'm informed
this is an officially supported machine configuration.

Administrators unfamiliar with group policy may find the videos below
instructive. Further information is available from the Windows Server
Group Policy Home


To watch a demonstration of this policy being applied to a Windows Server 2003
domain controller, see the link below.


To watch a demonstration of this policy being applied to a Windows Server 2008
domain controller, see the link below.


To watch a demonstration of this policy being applied to a shared but
unjoined Windows XP Professional machine, see the link below.


On Windows NT4, the following knowledgebase article explains how to disable the
NTVDM and WOWEXEC subsystems.


Applying these configuration changes will temporarily prevent users from
accessing legacy 16-bit MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 applications, however, few users
require this functionality.

If you do not require this feature and depend on NT security, consider
permanently disabling it in order to reduce kernel attack surface.


Microsoft was informed about this vulnerability on 12-Jun-2009, and they
confirmed receipt of my report on 22-Jun-2009.

Regrettably, no official patch is currently available. As an effective and easy
to deploy workaround is available, I have concluded that it is in the best
interest of users to go ahead with the publication of this document without an
official patch. It should be noted that very few users rely on NT security, the
primary audience of this advisory is expected to be domain administrators and
security professionals.
