Synopsis :

The remote Mac OS X host has a data encryption application installed
that is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Symantec Encryption Desktop installed on the remote Mac
OS X host is version 10.x prior to 10.3.2 MP3. It is, therefore,
affected by a denial of service vulnerability. The flaw is due to a
failure to properly limit decompressed file size during the decryption
process of a specially crafted encrypted email. Decryption of an
excessively large compressed message could cause high memory and CPU
usage resulting in a denial of service as the system becomes
unresponsive during the decompression attempt.
