Description

The version of McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention Services (HIPS) is prior to 8.0.0.3828. It is, therefore, affected by an authentication bypass vulnerability due to improper registry key permissions. A local attacker can exploit this, under certain conditions, to manipulate the product's registry keys.
