GEAR Software CD DVD Filter Driver Insecure Method Local Privilege Escalation

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has a kernel driver with an insecure method.

Description :

The version of GEAR Software's CD DVD Filter kernel driver
(GEARAspiWDM.sys) on the remote host contains an insecure method that
allows a local user to make an unlimited number of calls to
'IoAttachDevice' from user-land, thereby enabling him to exploit a
local privilege escalation flaw in the Microsoft Windows kernel in the
'IopfCompleteRequest' function.

Note that this driver may have been installed as part of a third-party
application such as Apple iTunes, Norton 360, Norton Ghost, Norton
Save and Restore, Backup Exec System Recovery, or Symantec LiveState

Solution :

Contact the appropriate vendor for an upgrade and verify that the
version of the kernel driver is or later.

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.2
