Sylvain Roger has discovered a weakness in SecuRemote / SecureClient, which potentially can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain knowledge of certain information.
The weakness is caused due to inappropriate default permissions on the registry keys under "HKLM/SOFTWARE/Checkpoint/SecureRemote/Credentials/". These keys are used to store encrypted "Auto Local Logon" credentials and are readable by all users on the system.
The weakness has been confirmed in version R56 HFA_03. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Disable the "Auto Local Logon" feature (disabled by default).
