McAfee Common Management Agent 3.6.0 UDP Packet Handling Format String (credentialed check)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 31733
SynopsisA remote service is affected by a format string vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote host is running a Common Management Agent, a component of the ePolicy Orchestrator system security management solution from McAfee.
The version of the Common Management Agent on the remote host is earlier than 184.108.40.2065 and, as such, contains a format string vulnerability. If configured with a debug level of 8 (its highest level but not the default), an unauthenticated, remote attacker may be able to leverage this issue by sending a specially crafted UDP packet to the agent broadcast port to crash the service or even execute arbitrary code on the affected host.
