PGP Desktop < 9.5.1 PGPserv Arbitrary Code Execution
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3893
SynopsisThe remote Windows host has an application that is affected by a privilege escalation issue.
DescriptionThe version of PGP Desktop installed on the remote host reportedly can allow an authenticated remote user to execute arbitrary code on the affected host with LOCAL SYSTEM privileges. The issue arises because the software operates a service named 'PGPServ' or 'PGPsdkServ' that exposes a named pipe that fails to validate the object data passed to it.
SolutionUpgrade to version 9.5.1 or higher.
