Vulnerability Note VU#219739
Portrait Displays SDK applications are vulnerable to arbitrary code execution and privilege escalation
Applications developed using the Portrait Display SDK, versions 2.30 through 2.34, default to insecure configurations which allow arbitrary code execution.
CWE-276: Incorrect Default Permissions - CVE-2017-3210
A number of applications developed using the Portrait Displays SDK do not use secure permissions when running. These applications run the component pdiservice.exe with NT AUTHORITY/SYSTEM permissions. This component is also read/writable by all Authenticated Users. This allows local authenticated attackers to run arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges.
A local authenticated (non-privileged) attacker can run arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges.
