CA Multiple Products InoCore.dll File Mapping Manipulation Local Overflow

High Nessus Plugin ID 25218


The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.


The version of CA Anti-Virus for the Enterprise / Threat Manager installed on the remote host is affected by a stack-based buffer overflow involving its task service, InoTask.exe. By supplying a long path to the file job's path, a local attacker can overflow a buffer in the 'QSIGetQueueID()' function in 'InoCore.dll', leading to possible command execution with the privileges under which the task service operates, LOCAL SYSTEM by default.
