Security researcher Stefan Kanthak found that the Skypeupdate installer could be exploited with a DLL hijacking technique, which allows an attacker to trick an application into drawing malicious code instead of the correct library. Security researcher has revealed that a potential attacker could exploit the "functionality of the Windows DLL loader where the process loading the DLL searches for the DLL to be loaded first in the same directory in which the process binary resides and then in other directories (e.g., System32)". The bug is applicable on both macOS and Windows desktop platforms. Despite it being a big flaw, Microsoft is reportedly not planning to fix the issue anytime soon. However fixes will be delivered in a new version of the Skype client rather than an update as it is "too much work", to complete the bug fix now, says the source. Skype UWP app is not affected by this vulnerability.
ZDNet explains that Skype has its own built-in updater and when it runs it uses another executable file to run the update, which is vulnerable to the hijacking.
The security expert informed Microsoft of the bug in September, but according to the Seclists' reported timeline of the bug, a fix will instead land in a newer version of the product rather than a dedicated security update. The company was able to reproduce the issue on their own computers. Once trespassed, hackers could potentially copy or delete critical files, install rogue apps, access confidential information, and do pretty much anything possible to the infected system.
The result, if exploited would mean that an ordinary user account would get all the privileges of a SYSTEM user.
"The team is planning on shipping a newer version of the client, and this current version will slowly be deprecated".
With no further action made by Microsoft since, Kanthak published the report on Friday as a warning to Skype users.
