Vulnerability in Facebook Messenger for Windows

Threat Level

MEDIUM

Software Affected

  • Facebook Messenger Desktop Application version 460.16

Overview

This vulnerability allows an attacker to execute malicious files already present on a compromised system. 

Description

According to the researchers, this vulnerability application triggers a call to load Windows Powershell from the location of “C:\python27”. This path automatically creates when installing python version 2.7 which does not commonly exist in most windows installations. 

An attacker could hijack such calls to load potentially non-existence resources to covertly execute malware to gain persistence and extended access to the system. 

Impact

  • Possibility of exposing confidential information to unauthorized parties
  • The system could be infected with malware

 Solution/ Workarounds

  • Upgrade to the latest Facebook Messenger Desktop version 480.5
