Synopsis :

The remote Nessus Client is affected by a local code execution

Description :

According to its version, the installation of Tenable Nessus Client
on the remote Windows host is version 4.x prior to 4.2.0. It is,
therefore, affected by a local code execution vulnerability in the
bundled version of QtWeb. QtWeb loads dynamic-link libraries using a
fixed path to look for specific files or libraries. A local attacker
can exploit this by placing a custom DLL file in the path, resulting
in the execution of arbitrary code.
