The instant messaging security application running on the remote Windows host may be affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


A version of Symantec IM Manager 8.x earlier than 8.3.14 is installed on the remote Windows host. Such versions may be affected by one or both of the following vulnerabilities :

- An integer overflow vulnerability in the third-party Autonomy KeyView module can be triggered when parsing a specially crafted OLE document and lead to a heap overflow and execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2009-3032)

- The IM Manager console fails to properly filter user input from non-privileged users with authorized access to the console, which can be exploited to inject arbitrary HTML or script code into a user's browser to be executed within the security context of the affected site. (CVE-2009-3036)


Upgrade to Symantec IM Manager 8.4.13 (build 8.4.1362) or later.
