Synopsis :

The remote host has an agent installed that is affected by a
clickjacking vulnerability.

Description :

According to its self-reported version number, the remote host has a
version of McAfee Agent (MA) installed that is 4.6.x prior to
4.8.0.1938 or 5.0.x prior to 5.0.1. It is, therefore, affected by a
clickjacking vulnerability in the log viewing feature due to improper
validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this,
via a crafted web page, to compromise the application or obtain
sensitive information.

Solution :

Upgrade to McAfee Agent 4.8.0 Patch 3 (4.8.0.1938) or 5.0.1 per the

As a workaround, it is possible to partially mitigate the vulnerability
by adjusting the Agent policy to only allow connections from the ePO
server.
