Symantec AntiVirus Management Interface Remote Overflow (SYM06-010)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 24236


The remote host is running a vulnerable version of Symantec AntiVirus.


The remote antivirus is vulnerable to a remote stack-based buffer overflow attack. In order to exploit this issue, the attacker needs to send an overly-long COM_FORWARD_LOG message to the management interface of the product, which listens on port 2967. Successful exploitation of this issue will result in complete compromise of the system. This issue was targeted by the 'Big Yellow' worm to gain complete control of vulnerable systems.


Update your Symantec Antivirus product.
