McAfee DLPe Agent < 11.6.200 Buffer Overflow (SB10368)

high Nessus Plugin ID 153460


The remote host is affected by a buffer overflow condition.


The version of the McAfee Data Loss Prevention Endpoint (DLPe) Agent installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 11.6.200. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability caused by copying a buffer without first checking the size of the input. This can be exploited by an authenticated, local attacker.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to McAfee DLPe 11.6.200 or later.
