Parvez Anwar has discovered a security issue in Corel getPlus Download Manager, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain escalated privileges.
The security issue is caused due to the application setting insecure default permissions on the "NOS" installation directory. This can be exploited to gain escalated privileges by e.g. replacing the getPlus_HelperSvc.exe service binary.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 188.8.131.52. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to the latest version and ensure that permissions on the "NOS" directory and contained files are set correctly.
