PGP Desktop PGPserv Crafted Data Object Arbitrary Code Execution

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by a
privilege escalation issue.

Description :

The version of PGP Desktop installed on the remote host reportedly can
allow a remote, authenticated user to execute arbitrary code on the
affected host with LOCAL SYSTEM privileges. The issue arises because
the software operates a service named 'PGPServ' or 'PGPsdkServ' that
exposes a named pipe that fails to validate the object data passed to
it.

Solution :

Upgrade to PGP Desktop version 9.5.2 or later, as the change log
suggests the issue has been addressed in that version.
