CWE ID 367


CVE-2022-47631, also known as Razer Synapse privilege escalation vulnerability, affects Razer Synapse versions up to 3.7.1209.121307. Attackers can exploit an unsafe installation path and improper privilege management to gain administrative privileges on Windows. By placing DLLs into the designated directory before the service is installed and denying write access for the SYSTEM user, attackers can replace a valid DLL with a malicious one after the service has already checked the file, exploiting a race condition. This vulnerability poses a high risk to organizations as it allows local Windows users to elevate their privileges and potentially gain unauthorized access to sensitive information or perform malicious actions on affected systems.
