Description

The version of Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) installed on the remote host is prior to 12.1 RU6 MP1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

  • A flaw exists in the password reset functionality that allows a remote attacker, using a crafted password reset action, to generate a new administrative session, thus bypassing authentication. (CVE-2015-1486)

  • A flaw exists related to filename validation in a console session that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to write arbitrary files. (CVE-2015-1487)

  • A flaw exists in an unspecified action handler that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to read arbitrary files. (CVE-2015-1488)

  • An unspecified flaw exists that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to manipulate SEPM services and gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2015-1489)

  • A flaw exists that allows traversing outside of a restricted path, due to a failure to properly sanitize user-supplied input. An authenticated, remote attacker, using a specially crafted installation package, can exploit this to access files outside of the restricted path. (CVE-2015-1490)

  • A SQL injection vulnerability exists due to a failure to properly sanitize user-supplied input before building SQL queries. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to disclose or manipulate data in the back-end database. (CVE-2015-1491)

  • A flaw in how Symantec Endpoint Protection clients load dynamic-link libraries allows an authenticated attacker to replace legitimate client libraries with malicious ones, thus injecting executable code. (CVE-2015-1492)

  • A flaw exists in the /servlet/AgentServlet script due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input before using it in SQL queries. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to inject or manipulate SQL queries against the back-end database, resulting in the disclosure or manipulation of arbitrary data.

  • A flaw exists in the SecurityAlertNotifyTask class due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary commands.

  • A flaw exists in Rtvscan.exe related to searching and loading dynamic-link library (DLL) files due to using an insecure search path which may include directories that are not trusted or under the user
