EMC NetWorker nsr_render_log Local Privilege Escalation
High Nessus Plugin ID 83032
SynopsisThe remote Windows host has an application installed that is affected by a local privilege escalation vulnerability.
DescriptionThe EMC NetWorker installed on the remote Windows host is a version prior to 184.108.40.206, or version 8.1.x prior to 220.127.116.11, or 8.2.x prior to 18.104.22.168 . It is, therefore, affected by a buffer overflow flaw in the nsr_render_log command-line interface. A local attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code with root privileges on all EMC Networker managed hosts.
SolutionUpgrade to EMC NetWorker 22.214.171.124 / 126.96.36.199 / 188.8.131.52 or later.
