A security management service running on the remote host is affected
by a denial of service vulnerability.
According to its banner, the version of the McAfee Common Management
Agent (CMA) running on the remote host is prior to 188.8.131.523. It is,
therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability in
FrameworkService.exe due to a memory corruption issue. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a long invalid
method in requests to the /spin//AVClient//AVClient.csp URI, to cause
the CMA Framework Service to crash.
