McAfee Common Management Agent < 3.6.0.595 UDP Packet Handling Format String

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

A security management service running on the remote host is affected
by a remote code execution vulnerability.

Description :

According to its banner, the version of McAfee Common Management Agent
(CMA) running on the remote host is prior to 3.6.0.595. It is,
therefore, affected by a flaw in the logDetail() function of
applib.dll due to calling vsnwprintf() without the needed format
string argument. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this,
via a specially crafted UDP packet, to cause a denial of service
condition or the execution of arbitrary code. This issue only occurs
when the debug level is set to 8 (the highest level but not the
default). Note that Nessus has not checked the debug level setting,
only the version number in the agent's banner.
