McAfee VirusScan Enterprise Path Subversion Arbitrary DLL Injection Code Execution

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a program that allows arbitrary code

Description :

The version of McAfee VirusScan Enterprise installed on the remote
Windows host is earlier than 8.7i. Such versions insecurely look in
their current working directory when resolving DLL dependencies, such
as for 'traceapp.dll'.

Attackers may exploit the issue by placing a specially crafted DLL
file and another file associated with the application in a location
controlled by the attacker. When the associated file is launched, the
attacker's arbitrary code can be executed.
