McAfee Application Control swin.sys Memory Corruption (SB10145)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 87922
SynopsisThe remote host has a security application installed that is affected by denial of service vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of McAfee Application Control is 6.1.0 prior to build 706, 6.1.1 prior to build 404, 6.1.2 prior to build 449, 6.1.3 prior to build 441, or 6.2.0 prior to build 505. It is, therefore, affected by a kernel memory corruption issue in the swin.sys driver when handling a 786 syscall, which causes a zero to be written to an arbitrary location in kernel memory. A local attacker can exploit this, via a crafted web page or file, to cause a denial of service, gain elevated privileges, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
SolutionUpgrade to McAfee Application Control version 22.214.171.1246 / 126.96.36.1994 / 188.8.131.529 / 184.108.40.2061 / 220.127.116.115 or later.
