  • Code Injection vulnerability in EPSetup.exe in McAfee Endpoint Security (ENS) Prior to 10.6.1 October 2019 Update allows local user to get their malicious code installed by the ENS installer via code injection into EPSetup.exe by an attacker with access to the installer. (CVE-2019-3652)

  • Improper access control vulnerability in Configuration tool in McAfee Endpoint Security (ENS) Prior to 10.6.1 October 2019 Update allows local user to gain access to security configuration via unauthorized use of the configuration tool. (CVE-2019-3653)

  • Improper access control vulnerability in configuration tool in McAfee Endpoint Security (ENS) prior to 10.6.1 February 2020 Update allows local user to disable security features via unauthorized use of the configuration tool from older versions of ENS. (CVE-2020-7251)
