OfficeScan protects enterprise networks from malware, network viruses, web-based threats, spyware, and mixed threat attacks.  
An integrated solution, OfficeScan consists of the OfficeScan agent program that resides at the endpoint and a server program that  
manages all agents. The OfficeScan agent guards the endpoint and reports its security status to the server. The server, through the  
web-based management console, makes it easy to set coordinated security policies and deploy updates to every agent.  
Vulnerability Type:  
Host Header Injection  
CVE Reference:  
Security Issue:  
Host header injection issue as "db_controller.php" relies on $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] which can be spoofed by client, instead of $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'].  
In environments where caching is in place by making HTTP GET request with a poisoned HOST header webpages can potentially render arbitrary  
links that point to a malicious website.
