Medium Nessus Plugin ID 84368
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 prior to 12.1 RU6. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- A DLL injection vulnerability exists due to improper path restrictions when loading DLLs. An authenticated, local attacker can exploit this to insert malicious DLL files, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with system permissions. (CVE-2014-9227)
- A denial of service vulnerability exists due to a deadlock condition in the 'sysplant.sys' file. A local attacker can exploit this by using a specially formatted call to cause the Windows system to be unable to fully shut down. Resolution of this condition requires a hard power cycle to restart the system. (CVE-2014-9228)
- A blind SQL injection vulnerability exists due to the improper validation of input to scripts used by the management console. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, using arbitrary SQL queries, to access or modify data in the back-end database. (CVE-2014-9229)
