Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3493
SynopsisThe remote Windows application is prone to a local privilege escalation issue.
DescriptionThe remote Windows application is prone to a local privilege escalation issue. The remote host is running ZoneAlarm, a firewall for Windows. The TrueVector service associated with the version of ZoneAlarm installed on the remote host loads as part of its startup several necessary DLLs without specifying their pathnames. An attacker with local access can exploit this flaw to execute arbitrary programs on the affected host with LOCAL SYSTEM privileges.
