Hi @ccondon-r7 I have one clients that were further compromised using this vulnerability (attackers already had a foothold into his network and used this vulnerability to gain Domain Admin and push a ransomware). As I’m not part of the IR team I’m still waiting for them to gather more details on the attack.

Technical Analysis

Unauthenticated attacker, able to directly connect to a Domain Controller over NRPC will be able to reset the Domain Controller’s account password to an empty string, thus enabling the attackers to further escalate their privileges to Domain Admin.

The exploit will be successful only if the Domain Controller uses the password stored in Active Directory to validate the login attempt, rather than the one stored locally as, when changing a password in this way, it is only changed in the AD. The targeted system itself will still locally store its original password.
Target computer will then not be able to authenticate to the domain anymore, and it can only be re-synchronized through manual action.
In test lab a successful attack broke the following functionalities when targeting a Domain Controller: DNS functionality and/or communication with replication Domain Controllers.
