McAfee Agent Unsupported Version Detection

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 84046


A system security agent running on the remote host is no longer supported.


According to its self-reported version number, the installation of McAfee Agent (formerly known as McAfee Common Management Agent) on the remote host is no longer supported. McAfee Agent is a component of the McAfee's ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) system security management solution.

Lack of support implies that no new security patches for the product will be released by the vendor. As a result, it is likely to contain security vulnerabilities.


Upgrade to a version of McAfee Agent that is currently supported.
