An antivirus application on the remote Windows host is affected by a
denial of service vulnerability.
The Sophos Anti-Virus install on the remote host uses an engine version
earlier than 3.50.1. As such, it reportedly has a misconfigured Access
Control List (ACL) on certain system objects that could allow a local
attacker to cause the host to become sluggish and eventually crash, or
display false 'ready for update' message popups.
