Synopsis :

The version of Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager installed on the
remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) installed
on the remote host is prior to 12.1 RU6 MP1. It is, therefore,
affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in the password reset functionality that
allows a remote attacker, using a crafted password reset
action, to generate a new administrative session, thus
bypassing authentication. (CVE-2015-1486)

- A flaw exists related to filename validation in a
console session that allows an authenticated, remote
attacker to write arbitrary files. (CVE-2015-1487)

- A flaw exists in an unspecified action handler that
allows an authenticated, remote attacker to read
arbitrary files. (CVE-2015-1488)

- An unspecified flaw exists that allows an authenticated,
remote attacker to manipulate SEPM services and gain
elevated privileges. (CVE-2015-1489)

- A flaw exists that allows traversing outside of a
restricted path, due to a failure to properly sanitize
user-supplied input. An authenticated, remote attacker,
using a specially crafted installation package, can
exploit this to access files outside of the restricted
path. (CVE-2015-1490)

- A SQL injection vulnerability exists due to a failure to
properly sanitize user-supplied input before building
SQL queries. An authenticated, remote attacker can
exploit this to disclose or manipulate data in the
back-end database. (CVE-2015-1491)

- A flaw in how Symantec Endpoint Protection clients load
dynamic-link libraries allows an authenticated attacker
to replace legitimate client libraries with malicious
ones, thus injecting executable code. (CVE-2015-1492)

- A flaw exists in the /servlet/AgentServlet script due to
improper sanitization of user-supplied input before
using it in SQL queries. An unauthenticated, remote
attacker can exploit this to inject or manipulate SQL
queries against the back-end database, resulting in the
disclosure or manipulation of arbitrary data.
(VulnDB 135139)

- A flaw exists in the SecurityAlertNotifyTask class due
to improper sanitization of user-supplied input. An
authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to
execute arbitrary commands. (VulnDB 135140)

- A flaw exists in Rtvscan.exe related to searching and
loading dynamic-link library (DLL) files due to using
an insecure search path which may include directories
that are not trusted or under the user's control. An
attacker can exploit this, by injecting a crafted DLL
file into path, to execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user. (VulnDB 135141)
