High Nessus Plugin ID 35288


The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by a local privilege escalation issue.


NOD32 3.0/ESET Smart Security is installed on the remote host. The installed version is older than 3.0.684. Such versions are reportedly affected by a local privilege escalation issue. By sending a specially crafted request to an IOCTL request handler in 'epfw.sys', a local user may be able to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges on the remote system.
