McAfee VirusScan Enterprise < 8.8 Patch 9 Scriptscan COM Object DoS (SB10194)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The antivirus application installed on the remote Windows host is
affected by a denial of service vulnerability.

Description :

The version of McAfee VirusScan Enterprise (VSE) installed on the
remote Windows host is prior to 8.9 Patch 9. It is, therefore,
affected by a memory corruption issue in the Scriptscan COM object. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially
crafted HTML link, to cause a denial of service condition on the
active Internet Explorer tab. Note that this denial of service occurs
only after a fresh installation of the Scriptscan COM DLL during
initialization.
