Symantec Veritas Storage Foundation Scheduler Service (VxSchedService.exe) Remote Code Execution

high Nessus Plugin ID 25420
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host.


The remote host is running a version of Symantec Storage Foundation for Windows that is vulnerable to a remote scheduler service access. An attacker may exploit this flaw to modify or create scheduled commands and gain a full access to the system.

To exploit this flaw, an attacker would need to send requests to the TCP service listening on port 4888.
