CVE-2021-42278 - From User to Domain Admin in (less than) 60 seconds

On Patch Tuesday of last November, Microsoft released advisories to address several vulnerabilities in Active-Directory. Analysis of these vulnerabilities showed that by combining CVE-2021-42278 and CVE-2021-42287 it is possible, under default conditions, for a regular user to easily impersonate a domain admin. This means that any domain user can effectively become a domain administrator, which makes these vulnerabilities extremely severe. Moreover, there are already several Github repositories with free-to-use PoC code that facilitates the exploitation of these vulnerabilities.
