Description

This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Trend Micro SafeSync for Enterprise. Although authentication is required to exploit this vulnerability, the existing authentication mechanism can be bypassed. The specific flaw exists within the license endpoint. The issue results from the lack of proper validation of a user-supplied string before using it to execute a system call. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code under the context of root.
