  Windows Vista Vulnerable to StickyKeys Backdoor
Time: 01:00 EST/06:00 GMT | News Source: *Linked Within Post* | Posted By: Kenneth van Surksum

StickyKeys is an accessibility feature to aid handicapped users. It allows the user to press a modifier key, such as the Shift key, and have it remain active until another key is pressed. StickyKeys is activated by pressing the shift key or a modifier key five times in sequence and a beep is sounded. Sounds innocuous, right? Dead wrong!

Apparently, Windows Vista does not check the integrity of the file that launches StickyKeys “c:/windows/system32/sethc.exe” before executing it. Which means you could replace it with another executable and run it by depressing the shift key five times. A popular replacement is “cmd.exe.” After replacement, one could invoke this command prompt at the login prompt without the need to authenticate.

I always knew I hated stickykeys for a reason, this is just another reason it is annoying.

If I leave my car running, while I'm not in it, some low life can easily steal it. My car is vulnerable!

Dunno about Vista, it must be the same, but in XP and earlier Windows versions at least, it is possible to keep StickyKeys enabled and disable ONLY the keyboard shortcut.
