This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Kaspersky Internet Security. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must open a malicious file.

The specific flaw exists within the built-in RPC server implemented in prremote.dll. This RPC server listens over the 'PRRemote:' RPC endpoint. Through the RPC server an attacker can insert a specially crafted call_table_ref in order to gain code execution. An attacker can execute arbitrary code under the context of SYSTEM or the user of the process.
