Low Nessus Plugin ID 87500
SynopsisThe remote Windows host has an antivirus application installed that is affected by a buffer overflow protection (BOP) security bypass vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of McAfee VirusScan Enterprise installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 8.8 Patch 6. It is, therefore, affected by a buffer overflow protection (BOP) security bypass vulnerability due to insecure allocation of memory pages with Read, Write, and Execute (RWX) permissions at a constant predictable address. A local attacker can exploit this to gain access to the address space layout.
SolutionUpgrade to McAfee VirusScan Enterprise version 8.8 Patch 6.
