High Nessus Plugin ID 79083
SynopsisThe version of Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) installed on the remote host is 12.1 prior to 12.1 RU5. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- An XML external entity (XXE) injection vulnerability due to improper validation of XML external entities. A remote attacker, impersonating the input source of external information or updates, can access restricted data or leverage additional management console functionality using specially crafted XML data.
- A reflected cross-site scripting vulnerability due to improper validation of user-supplied input to the 'ErrorMsg' parameter in 'SSO-Error.jsp'. This allows a remote attacker, with a specially crafted request, to execute arbitrary script code within the browser / server trust relationship. (CVE-2014-3438)
- An arbitrary file write vulnerability in the 'ConsoleServlet' due to improper filtering of user-supplied data to the logging component. This allows a remote attacker to write arbitrary code to the log file or disk, potentially causing a denial of service or unauthorized elevated access.
SolutionUpgrade to Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager 12.1.5 (RU5) or later.
