PGP Desktop < 9.5.1 PGPserv Arbitrary Code Execution

Medium

Synopsis

The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by a privilege escalation issue.

Description

The 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.

Solution

Upgrade to version 9.5.1 or higher.
