Vulnerability in Checkpoint Harmony (CVE-2024-24912)

Checkpoint Harmony is an enterprise security software protecting customers from malware.

Local Privilege Escalation Vulnerability in Checkpoint Harmony

The fixed vulnerability allowed an attacker to escalate his privileges to SYSTEM on a system that the attacker already had access to.

This was possible by using COM-Hijacking to execute code in the context of a trusted front-end process. The trust between the front end and the back end was then abused to write a file to an arbitrary path, allowing an attacker to gain SYSTEM privileges.

We want to thank Checkpoint for their exemplary reaction to the vulnerability report.
