A vulnerability, which was classified as critical, was found in SailPoint Desktop Password Reset 7.2. Affected is some unknown functionality of the component Windows Logon Screen. The manipulation with an unknown input leads to a privilege escalation vulnerability. CWE is classifying the issue as CWE-264. This is going to have an impact on confidentiality, integrity, and availability. CVE summarizes:

An unauthenticated privilege escalation exists in SailPoint Desktop Password Reset 7.2. A user with local access to only the Windows logon screen can escalate their privileges to NT AUTHORITY\System. An attacker would need local access to the machine for a successful exploit. The attacker must disconnect the computer from the local network / WAN and connect it to an internet facing access point / network. At that point, the attacker can execute the password-reset functionality, which will expose a web browser. Browsing to a site that calls local Windows system functions (e.g., file upload) will expose the local file system. From there an attacker can launch a privileged command shell.

The weakness was shared 08/20/2019. This vulnerability is traded as CVE-2019-12889 since 06/19/2019. Local access is required to approach this attack. The exploitation doesn't require any form of authentication. The technical details are unknown and an exploit is not available. The structure of the vulnerability defines a possible price range of USD $0-$5k at the moment (estimation calculated on 08/01/2020).

There is no information about possible countermeasures known. It may be suggested to replace the affected object with an alternative product.
