Description

McAfee E-Business Server, an enterprise tool for digitally encrypting and signing electronic files, is installed on the remote host.

The version of this software installed on the remote host fails to properly handle over-sized authentication packets sent to its administration interface, generally TCP port 1718. An unauthenticated, remote attacker may be able to leverage this issue to crash the affected service or even execute arbitrary code on the remote host with LOCAL SYSTEM privileges.
