Cisco VPN Client 5.x < 5.0.07.0440 Untrusted Search Path DLL Privilege Escalation

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


Synopsis :

The VPN client installed on the remote Windows host is affected by a
local privilege escalation vulnerability.

Description :

The version of the Cisco VPN client installed on the remote host
is 5.x prior to 5.0.07.0440. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw
related to loading dynamic link library (DLL) files due to searching
fixed paths that may not be trusted or under user control. A local
attacker can exploit this, via a trojan DLL injected into the search
path, to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.
