Hi @ll,

Fujitsu's ScanSnap software installers WinSSInstiX500WW1.exe
and WinSSInstS1100iWW1.exe, available from
<http://www.fujitsu.com/global/support/products/computing/peripheral/scanners/scansnap/software/ix500w-installer.html>
and
<http://www.fujitsu.com/global/support/products/computing/peripheral/scanners/scansnap/software/s1100i.html>,
execute C:\Program.exe multiple times near the end of the
installation process.
I'm VERY confident that the installers for other scanner models
show the same vulnerability.

Culprit is the program SSInst.exe, which fails to quote the command
lines
    C:\Program Files\PFU\ScanSnap\SSFolder\SSFolderTray.exe  /e /u
    C:\Program Files\PFU\ScanSnap\Driver\SsWizard\PfuSsConnectionWizard.exe  /ini
    C:\Program Files\PFU\ScanSnap\Driver\SsWifiTool\PfuSsWiFiToolStart.exe  /s
    C:\Program Files\PFU\ScanSnap\Driver\SsWizard\PfuSsConnectionWizard.exe  /SSType
properly; since SSInst.exe runs with administrative privileges,
C:\Program.exe is executed with administrative privileges too.

For this well-known and well-documented beginner's error see
<https://cwe.mitre.org/data/definitions/428.html> as well as
<https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms682425.aspx#Security_Remarks>

JFTR: Microsoft introduced "long" filenames more that 20 years ago.

Stay away from the crapware shipped with Fujitsu's scanners!


stay tuned
