Novell ZENworks ESM Security Client STEngine Privilege Escalation

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains an application that is prone to a
local privilege escalation vulnerability.

Description :

Novell ZENworks Endpoint Security Management (ESM) Security Client is
installed on the remote host. It provides a centrally-managed,
policy-based firewall for enterprise computers.

The version of this software on the remote host dynamically generates
various scripts which are then executed by the application in a
directory to which local users have write access and also will run
them using the file 'cmd.exe' in that directory. A local user can
reportedly leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code on the
affected host with SYSTEM level privileges.

Solution :
