An application on the remote host is affected by a privilege escalation
The version of McAfee LinuxShield installed on the remote host is 1.5.1
or earlier. As such, it potentially is affected by a privilege
escalation vulnerability because it does not properly authenticate
clients. An attacker able to log into the remote host can leverage this
vulnerability to authenticate to the application's 'nailsd' daemon and
do configuration changes as well as execute tasks subject to the
privileges with which the 'nailsd' daemon operates.
