Technical Details & Description:
A local privilege escalation vulnerability has been discovered in the official iBackup v10.0.0.45 software.
The vulnerability allows local attackers to gain higher access privileges by execution of arbitrary codes.

The `ibservice` service for windows could potentially allow an authorized but non-privileged local user to 
execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges on the system. A successful attempt would require the local 
user to be able to insert their code in the system root path undetected by the OS or other security applications 
where it could potentially be executed during application startup or reboot. If successful, the local user`s code 
would execute with the elevated privileges of the application.

The security risk of the privilege escalation vulnerability is estimated as high with a cvss (common vulnerability 
scoring system) count of 6.2. Exploitation of the vulnerability requires a local privileged systen user account 
without user for interaction. Successful exploitation of the arbitrary code execution vulnerability results in 
software- or system compromise.

Proof of Concept (PoC):
The vulnerability can be exploited by local attackers with low privileged or restricted system user account and without user interaction.
For security demonstration or to reproduce the vulnerability follow the provided information and steps below to continue.
