PGP Desktop PGPserv Crafted Data Object Arbitrary Code Execution
High Nessus Plugin ID 24246
SynopsisThe remote Windows host has an application that is affected by a privilege escalation issue.
DescriptionThe version of PGP Desktop installed on the remote host reportedly can allow a remote, authenticated user to execute arbitrary code on the affected host with LOCAL SYSTEM privileges. The issue arises because the software operates a service named 'PGPServ' or 'PGPsdkServ' that exposes a named pipe that fails to validate the object data passed to it.
SolutionUpgrade to PGP Desktop version 9.5.2 or later, as the change log suggests the issue has been addressed in that version.
