EMC NetWorker nsr_render_log Local Privilege Escalation

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has an application installed that is affected
by a local privilege escalation vulnerability.

Description :

The EMC NetWorker installed on the remote Windows host is a version
prior to 8.0.4.3, or version 8.1.x prior to 8.1.2.6, or 8.2.x prior to
8.2.1.2 . It is, therefore, affected by a buffer overflow flaw in the
nsr_render_log command-line interface. A local attacker can exploit
this to execute arbitrary code with root privileges on all EMC
Networker managed hosts.
