None Local Low Not required Partial None None
The PureVPN client before 6.1.0 for Windows stores Login Credentials (username and password) in cleartext. The location of such files is %PROGRAMDATA%\purevpn\config\login.conf. Additionally, all local users can read this file.
2 CVE-2018-10204 732 Exec Code 2018-04-18 2019-10-03
None Remote Low ??? Complete Complete Complete
PureVPN 6.0.1 for Windows suffers from a SYSTEM privilege escalation vulnerability in its "sevpnclient" service. When configured to use the OpenVPN protocol, the "sevpnclient" service executes "openvpn.exe" using the OpenVPN config file located at %PROGRAMDATA%\purevpn\config\config.ovpn. This file allows "Write" permissions to users in the "Everyone" group. An authenticated attacker may modify this file to specify a dynamic library plugin that should run for every new VPN connection attempt. This plugin will execute code in the context of the SYSTEM account.
3 CVE-2018-7484 426 2018-02-26 2018-03-17
None Remote Medium Not required Complete Complete Complete
An issue was discovered in PureVPN through on Windows. The client installation grants the Everyone group Full Control permission to the installation directory. In addition, the PureVPNService.exe service, which runs under NT Authority\SYSTEM privileges, tries to load several dynamic-link libraries using relative paths instead of the absolute path. When not using a fully qualified path, the application will first try to load the library from the directory from which the application is started. As the residing directory of PureVPNService.exe is writable to all users, this makes the application susceptible to privilege escalation through DLL hijacking.
4 CVE-2018-6822 Exec Code 2018-02-07 2020-05-11
