Veritas Backup Exec includes an OpenSSL component that specifies an OPENSSLDIR variable as /usr/local/ssl/. On the Windows platform, this path is interpreted as C:\usr\local\ssl. Backup Exec contains a privileged service that uses this OpenSSL component. Because unprivileged Windows users can create subdirectories off of the system root, a user can create the appropriate path to a specially-crafted openssl.cnf file to achieve arbitrary code execution with SYSTEM privileges.
