Airscanner Mobile Security Advisory: Spb Kiosk Engine Administrator Password & Information Disclosure (Local)

Kiosk Engine allows an administrator to enter their passcode to gain full control over a PDA with the Kiosk Engine installed. This passcode is stored in the registry as plaintext and can be obtained several different ways (eg. remote registry access). (Source: Seth Fogie, AirScanner)

Airscanner Mobile Security Advisory: Spb Kiosk Engine Program Bypass

The core Kiosk Engine is executed from the \windows\startup folder when the PDA boots. This ensures that the device is locked down and basically keeps a person from using other programs on the PDA. However, it is still possible to execute programs via 'features' of the running appliaction (eg. Pocket Word will execute programs via hyperlink - file://\windows\calc.exe). In addition, autorun is still enabled on the devices, which allows anyone with a SD Card or CF card to execute their own code on the device. Using this backdoor, we were able to overwrite the administrator passcode and alternately, remove the KioskEngine software altogether. (Source: Seth Fogie, AirScanner)
