New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

Comodo Antivirus versions up to 12.0.0.6810 are vulnerable to Local Privilege Escalation due to CmdAgent's handling of COM clients. A local process can bypass the signature check enforced by CmdAgent via process hollowing which can then allow the process to invoke sensitive COM methods in CmdAgent such as writing to the registry with SYSTEM privileges.
