Synopsis :

The security application installed on the remote Windows host is
affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of McAfee Security Scan Plus installed on the remote
Windows host is prior to 3.11.474.2. It is, therefore, affected by
multiple vulnerabilities :

- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in
McUICnt.exe due to certain DLL files being loaded from
the same directory as signed binaries that are scanned
using a class object from
McComponentHostService.McCompHost. A local attacker can
exploit this to gain SYSTEM privileges. (CVE-2016-8008)

- A local command execution vulnerability exists in the
internal API due to a flaw that allows programs to be
executed using the RunProgramEx() function in an class
object loaded from McComponentHostService.McCompHost. A
local attacker can exploit this to execute commands with
SYSTEM privileges. (CVE-2016-8026)
