McAfee E-Business Server Administration Client Length Remote DoS

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 25091


The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.


McAfee E-Business Server, an enterprise tool for digitally encrypting and signing electronic files, is installed on the remote host.

The Administration Agent component of the version of McAfee E-Business Server installed on the remote host reportedly fails to validate the length from a packet header before using it to try to read input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker may be able to leverage this issue to crash the affected service, thereby denying service to legitimate users.


Upgrade to e-Business Server 8.5.2 or later.
