The remote service is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.
According to its version number, the installation of eScan on the
remote host includes a service, the MicroWorld Agent service, for
remote administration that fails to properly handle overly-long
commands. A remote attacker can leverage this issue to crash the
service or even execute arbitrary code.
Since the service operates with LocalSystem privileges, successful
exploitation could lead to a complete compromise of the affected host.

Upgrade to eScan version 9.0.718.1 or later as that reportedly
resolves the issue.
Risk factor :
Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
CVSS Temporal Score : 7.4
Public Exploit Available : false
