Description

The Cisco VPN client installed on the remote host has a privilege escalation vulnerability. cvpnd.exe, which is executed by the Cisco VPN Service, has insecure permissions. A local attacker could replace this file with arbitrary code, which would later be executed by the Cisco VPN Service, resulting in an elevation of privileges.

The following versions are vulnerable :

  • 32-bit versions prior to 5.0.01.0600
    • 64-bit version 5.0.7.0240
    • 64-bit version 5.0.7.0290
