McAfee VirusScan Enterprise Path Subversion Arbitrary DLL Injection Code Execution
High Nessus Plugin ID 50986
SynopsisThe remote Windows host contains a program that allows arbitrary code execution.
DescriptionThe version of McAfee VirusScan Enterprise installed on the remote Windows host is earlier than 8.7i. Such versions insecurely look in their current working directory when resolving DLL dependencies, such as for 'traceapp.dll'.
Attackers may exploit the issue by placing a specially crafted DLL file and another file associated with the application in a location controlled by the attacker. When the associated file is launched, the attacker's arbitrary code can be executed.
SolutionUpgrade to VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i or later, or apply the hotfix when it is released.
