Panda AdminSecure Communications Agent < Directory Traversal

Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains an application that is affected by a
directory traversal vulnerability.

Description :

The Panda AdminSecure Communications Agent software, which is used for
centralized management of Panda Antivirus, installed on the remote
Windows host contains a flaw in the handling of MESSAGE_FROM_REMOTE
messages. The software does not properly sanitize inputs, allowing an
attacker to craft a special message that allows traversing outside of a
restricted path. This may allow a remote attacker to overwrite
arbitrary files and execute remote code with SYSTEM privileges.
