Bypass UAC Protection of Remote Windows 10 PC (Via FodHelper Registry Key)

Hello friends! Today we are going to share a new article related to how to bypass window 10 UAC once you have hacked the victim’s system. In Metasploit, a new module has been added to achieve admin access in window 10s.

Attacker: Kali Linux

Target: Windows 10

This module will bypass Windows 10 UAC by hijacking a special key in the Registry under the current user hive, and inserting a custom command that will get invoked when the Windows fodhelper.exe application is launched. It will spawn a second shell that has the UAC flag turned off. This module modifies a registry key, but cleans up the key once the payload has been invoked. The module does not require the architecture of the payload to match the OS. If specifying EXE::Custom your DLL should call ExitProcess() after starting your payload in a separate process.

use exploit/windows/local/bypassuac_fodhelper
msf exploit(bypassuac_fodhelper) >set session 1
msf exploit(bypassuac_fodhelper) >exploit

Hence you can see another meterpreter session 2 opened which means we successfully exploited the target once again now let’s check user privilege.

meterpreter > getsystem

Awesome!!!! We got admin privilege successfully.
