Blue Coat Unified Agent < 4.6.2 Configuration File Manipulation Detection Failure

This script is Copyright (C) 2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

A security and acceleration application installed on the remote
Windows host is affected by a failure to detect manipulation of a
configuration file.

Description :

The version of Blue Coat Unified Agent installed on the remote Windows
host is prior to 4.6.2. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw due to a
failure to detect when a configuration file has been changed by an
administrator when running in local enforcement mode. A local attacker
can exploit this to unblock categories or disable Unified Agent
entirely.

Note that Unified Agents running in cloud mode are not affected by the
vulnerability.
