Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager 11.x / 12.x < 12.1 RU6 MP1 Multiple Vulnerabilities (SYM15-007)
High Nessus Plugin ID 85256
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 MP1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- A flaw exists in the password reset functionality that allows a remote attacker, using a crafted password reset action, to generate a new administrative session, thus bypassing authentication. (CVE-2015-1486)
- A flaw exists related to filename validation in a console session that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to write arbitrary files. (CVE-2015-1487)
- A flaw exists in an unspecified action handler that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to read arbitrary files. (CVE-2015-1488)
- An unspecified flaw exists that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to manipulate SEPM services and gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2015-1489)
- A flaw exists that allows traversing outside of a restricted path, due to a failure to properly sanitize user-supplied input. An authenticated, remote attacker, using a specially crafted installation package, can exploit this to access files outside of the restricted path. (CVE-2015-1490)
- A SQL injection vulnerability exists due to a failure to properly sanitize user-supplied input before building SQL queries. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to disclose or manipulate data in the back-end database. (CVE-2015-1491)
- A flaw in how Symantec Endpoint Protection clients load dynamic-link libraries allows an authenticated attacker to replace legitimate client libraries with malicious ones, thus injecting executable code. (CVE-2015-1492)
- A flaw exists in the /servlet/AgentServlet script due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input before using it in SQL queries. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to inject or manipulate SQL queries against the back-end database, resulting in the disclosure or manipulation of arbitrary data.
- A flaw exists in the SecurityAlertNotifyTask class due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary commands. (VulnDB 135140)
- A flaw exists in Rtvscan.exe related to searching and loading dynamic-link library (DLL) files due to using an insecure search path which may include directories that are not trusted or under the user's control. An attacker can exploit this, by injecting a crafted DLL file into path, to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. (VulnDB 135141)
SolutionUpgrade to Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager version 12.1 RU6 MP1 or later.
